So I was just told that my official layoff day is Tuesday the 1rst. I am located in N.J. and I have been there for 5 years. I was told that I can not come back into the building for 5 days b/c of the union contract, but I can collect unemployment for those days. I was also told that I will be getting a call after those days if a spot opens up for my shift (twi). They are not hiring twilight right bow and I have to wait till june 7th when hey hire for that shift again.However i was offered a preload shift that I cannot do b/c of school. 2 questions. 1. Will unemployment turn me down because I denied a shift (preload) even though I was initially hired for twilight (the only shift I can work)? 2. Can I bid for another persons job that has less seniority but has received a package (severance ?)?
