This is a reminder that the University will be closed on Friday, November 24, 2017.  You may recall that the day after Thanksgiving is the eleventh holiday for AFSCME-covered employees. 

The granting of this eleventh holiday has not been extended to managers or members of other bargaining units within the State System of Higher Education.  Therefore, it will be necessary for you to use annual, personal or compensatory leave for that day. 

The following represents the 2017 minor holidays which have been deferred to dates when the University is not at full operation.

           Deferred Holiday                                         Dates Offices are Closed


           Presidents’ Day (02-20-17)                          Tuesday, December 26, 2017

           Columbus Day (10-09-17)                           Wednesday, December 27, 2017

           Veterans’ Day (11-10-17)                            Thursday, December 28, 2017

If you were eligible for minor holidays as they occurred, you are entitled to utilize them on the dates the offices are closed.  For any minor holidays not earned, you will need to use annual or personal leave in order to get paid for them.


If you have any questions concerning this matter, please contact the Human Resources Office at extension 4427.
