Whats up guys. So I've been with ups PT for almost 8 years. I had an educational transfer to another center and was there for about a year and a half and decided to transfer back to my original center (I understood being endtailed). I was told by hr when returning to just go into work as normal unless told otherwise. So I worked a sort or two and then was told by acting PT sup (he was actually an on road) that we were overstaffed and I was going to be a lay off. So I miss the next week of work and am called by a coworker that ive known since being hired. He asks me why I wasnt at work due to the fact that a new hire was there working all week. I call my shop steward and explain. He tells me that the new hire was hired 2 weeks before I transferred back (but had not worked until the week of my lay off) and thus he had seniority over me. I was always told that your date of hire was the first day you work as well as your seniority start date. Am I wrong to think that the new guy shouldnt be ahead of me in seniority?
