RE: Civil Service (Non Bargaining Unit) Seniority Units
Civil Service (non-bargaining unit) – Seniority is defined as “The unit in which employees earn seniority. This can be a department, a group of departments, an administrative unit, a college, or an entire campus. Seniority units are determined at the collegiate or vice presidential level, with the approval of the Vice President.” Seniority is rarely used for anything other than Layoff and Bumping.
