Special rates for House Officers.
The University of Michigan House Officers Association has a new status with Rose Moving and Storage and Allied Van Lines.

Mike Engelhardt is the Business Manager for Rose Moving and Storage, an agent of Allied Van Lines. Mike wants to work with house officers to schedule moves as soon as you know where you're headed. Locking in your dates during the winter will save you money.
Moving is expensive, waiting until the last minute to schedule your move is one of the worst things you can do. Call or email Mike for a free estimate.

HO's have 10 paid holidays, which includes your birthday!
The HOA contract outlines that anyone who works on holidays such as, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day, gets an extra day's pay for those days. There are 10 paid holidays listed in the contract. This includes those on-call, inpatient service coverage, clinics, rounding, jeopardy, home call, back-up, etc. This means any part of that 24 hour holiday, entitles you to extra compensation.
According to the HOA contract, House Officers are responsible for submitting a notice of eligibility for holiday pay to their Program Director or designated program official (Program Coordinator) within 60 calendar days of a House Officer holiday, when they are assigned any of the above mentioned duties.
Each department may handle this a little differently, but the responsibility belongs to the house officer. In order for this information to get pushed to payroll in a timely manner, make sure you have met the requirements.
GME, HR, and HOA come to terms
The University of Michigan and the University of Michigan House Officers Association have agreed to the following resolution of Grievance #13-7938:
A House Officer who successfully completes a full year of full time training will be assigned to the next higher salary and House Officer level.
Paragraph #1 does not apply to the following circumstances:
A House Officer whose training is extended due to a leave of absence;
A House Officer whose training is extended due to remediation;
A House Officer who changes core residency training programs;
OMFS residents who attend medical school during the residency training period;
A House Officer who requests and is granted a part-time training schedule.
Outside applicants who successfully complete one or more years of full time training elsewhere in a position that would have been a House Officer position had it been worked at UMHS will be given credit for those years and assigned to the corresponding next higher HO level upon initial appointment as a House Officer at UMHS. This paragraph shall not apply to outside applicants to UMHS changing core residency training programs.
Beginning with training year 2014 (7/1/2013 to 6/30/2014), for each House Officer who was not advanced as described in paragraph 1, or not assigned to the corresponding next higher HO level upon initial appointment as described in paragraph 3, UMHS will advance the House Officer to the appropriate HO level and make the House Officer whole.
For House Officers who were not advanced in training year 2013, and who are currently House Officers at UMHS, UMHS will advance the House Officer to the appropriate level and make the House Officer whole for losses that have occurred since 7/1/2013.
