    Sorry if this thread is common knowledge to most. If two employees have same hire date with zero pt, what decides senior employee for bidding purposes?

    In my building it would go alphabetically by their last name.

    Depends on local practices. It is different everywhere.

    Who punched in first
    Date and or time on application
    Who got their 30 days in first
    Coin toss
    Winner of the bare knuckle brawl
    Biggest shoe size
    Bust size

    In all seriousness, this is how we did it last time it came up in my building.

    The only case we had like this was settled with a coin toss----------------------------and the loser cried about it for thirty years. Both of the guys were avid hunters and the one who won the coin toss got his pick of vacations first so that lead to some awkward situations---especially at deer hunting time.

    I always assumed it was decided by a race of whoever could get themselves off the fastest.

    No-- it wasn't me. I was lucky enough to be hired when UPS was just starting to expand nation wide. About a year after I was hired our center more than tripled the number of employees. Shortly after I started we had 2 ten year drivers quit (we only had 8 drivers counting me to start with) so I was always able to get what ever weeks I wanted off for vacation

    Upstate NY Supplement

    Article 57 Section 3

    Where two (2) or more employees have the same seniority date, the employee who completed their thirtieth (30th) workday first shall go ahead on the seniority list. If still tied, the date of employment application shall govern, and if still tied, seniority order shall be decided by coin toss.

    I can see all kinds of problems here with the coin toss.
    Who calls it
    Who tosses it
    What coin to use
    Is it let to hit the floor or caught and slapped on arm

    Etc etc etc

    Depends on area but here its handled by application date and then coin toss as a tie breaker.
