The seniority of regular employees consists of their relative tenure with respect to other employees in their occupational group (for service/maintenance employees) within their respective department; the department; and campus/university. Seniority accumulates from the first day of employment in the employee's group or special skill, but an employee is not entitled to benefits of seniority until successful completion of the probationary period.
