  • Pennsylvania seniority laws

    I have a question regarding seniority. I have been employed by a communications company since 1995, from 1995 to 2006 I was in a non-union position. In 2006 I was awarded a union position but as far as seniority was concerned I was told I had the least amount of seniority even though I had more time in than my coworkers. I questioned this and was told it was time in the union not the company. Is this legal?

    PA has no laws regarding seniority. Nor does any other state. Nor does Federal law.

    Seniority is 100% based on the rules of the union or company policy. If the union contract says that time in the union is what counts towards seniority and does not count non-union time, then that's the way it is and it's 100% legal.
    The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.
