One of the most important terms of our collective agreements is the tracking of members’ seniority, which we refer to as precedence. As a rule, if two individuals with equal qualifications apply for the same job, the member with the most precedence at the hiring institution must be awarded the contract for the job.

Note: Precedence for Dalhousie TAs is tabulated informally by each department and is not recorded by the local.

The deadlines for changing errors in the precedence lists are quite restricted,  so please be sure to check your collective agreements for dates and deadlines.
