Full-time service as a Regular Employee need not be continuous to count towards seniority. Neither temporary full-time service nor part time teaching shall count toward seniority.

B.       In the event two or more Employees have the same seniority date as defined above, a second (tie breaking) date will apply.

1. Temporary full-time employment or part-time employment at the College prior to full-time appointment, such service to be based on number of credit sections taught for teachers or days worked for other employees.  This service need not be continuous.

2. Dates in A and B above are determined at the time of hire as a regular full-time Employee. Except as provided herein, in no instance shall time spent outside the bargaining unit in the employ of the College be counted towards seniority.

C.      Should A and B above not be determinative, ties will be broken by lot conducted by the Federation in the presence of the affected Employees.
