Local 1650 maintains a Facebook group that consists of Local 1650 members, elected administrators, and retirees. You can find the group by searching for AFT — Local 1650, Henry Ford Federation of Teachers in Facebook. The group is closed and so you will have to request to join and have one of the vice presidents, currently Eric Rader and Jeff Morford, let you join the group. Having a closed group allows for more open discussions from time-to-time when needed.
Recent content on the page includes discussions of when reimbursements for PIF and the tuition fund would be paid, articles about education from various publications, a discussion of how to help Puerto Rico recover from Hurricane Maria, and announcements of events involving members and retirees. Please consider joining if you are a Local 1650 member and use Facebook.
