    I use to work the night local sort and then recently moved to preload, but now alot of preloaders are getting laid off continuously, this is my first week I have been laid off but I was wondering if I can bump someone off of the local sort because I have more seniority over most of them. I just am not sure if part time employees can bump other part time employees.

    If you have seniority you should be able to consult your steward or BA

    If the layoff exceeds one week, you may displace any junior part-time employee in the building.

    Does anyone know where the lay-off information is in the contract books?

    It will be in your local supplement/ rider section of the contract

    I think it will probably depend on whether you have one seniority list, building wide for part-timers or if you have a Twilight list and a Preload list. You also need to see how your transfer affected your seniority as some supplements will dove-tail you and others will place you at the bottom for vacation/preferred job/ and layoff consideration.
