    I need to change shifts from twilight to sunrise by submitting a letter to Human Resources. I might have to give notice if I can't change shifts soon. Any specific reason I should give to get priority status?

    You're a little weird?

    Welcome to Brown Cafe, Lindy.

    It is harder to hire people for the Sunrise sort than it is for the Twilight sort.
    Let them know you will have to quit if you can't transfer.

    Not sure how your local is but here there has to be an OPEN spot on a shift to transfer. And even if there is an open spot, you must put it in writing that you intend to change shifts. It goes by seniority, and I think you must remain on that shift for at least 6 months. The only other way would be if you were laid off from your current shift and bumped a less senior part timer off another shift.

    Weirdlindy, if you're a part-timer covered by the National Master, then switching shifts goes by seniority.

    Well when I switched from the Night to Twi it was because I was laid off & the Twi needed people to work, so I lucked out.
