What is Seniority?

Seniority is how long a member has worked as a union member. Your seniority may not be the same as your years of service.

Some collective agreement articles use seniority as part of different processes. For example, when more than one internal applicant for a job has equal experience and qualifications, the person with the highest seniority would be the successful candidate.
