Professional and service personnel employed by a multi-county vocational center shall
establish seniority on the basis of the length of time the employee has been employed
by the multi-county vocational center, except that any professional or service personnel
whose employment with the multi-county vocational center was immediately preceded
by employment with one of the county boards participating in the operation of the
center or whose employment contract was with one of the county boards participating
in the operation of the center (1) shall retain any seniority accrued during employment
by said county board; (2) shall accrue seniority as a regular employee with said
county board during employment with the center; (3) shall attain continuing contract
status with both the county and the center if the sum of the years employed by the
county and the center equals the statutory number required for continuing contract
status; and (4) shall retain and continue to accrue county and center seniority in
the event of reemployment by said participating county as a result of direct transfer
from the center or recall from the preferred list.
Reductions in work force in the center or employment by the center or county board
shall be made in accordance with the provisions of sections seven-a and eight-b of
this article: Provided, That only years of employment within the multi-county vocational
center shall be considered for purposes of reduction in force within the center.
The seniority conferred herein shall apply retroactively to all affected professional
and service personnel, but the rights incidental thereto shall commence as of the
effective date of this section.
