The seniority merger process is well underway. By now, you should have received your Seniority Verification Letter (SVL) at your home address.
If you did not receive it, you may request that a duplicate be sent to you by email. To do so, send your request to the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. Your request must include your Name, Employee Number, Council/Base, and your Email Address.
To help explain where we are in the seniority merger process, we have included a timeline of events. Note that the next date is November 24, the due date to notify us of any inaccuracies. That is followed in January 2018, when we will work on the credit for training days and how to resolve same-day seniority dates.
