MOU - Bumping Qualifications

The parties agree that in addition to the contract language of Article 26.2(c), the following procedure will be used:

If it is determined that a more senior employee being laid off does not meet the qualifications of the position occupied by the employee(s), (in inverse order), with the least master seniority, the parties will meet and confer. If resolution cannot be reached, the matter will be referred to the Bureau of Mediation Services for final resolution.
