Porting of Seniority
Article C.2.2.a of the collective agreement states that “Effective September 1, 2006… an employee who achieved continuing contract status in another school district shall be credited with up to ten (10) years of seniority accumulated in other school districts in BC.” Teachers should refer to the full article C.2 in the collective agreement related to Seniority for more details.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Porting of seniority is not an automatic process. It is up to the teacher to provide the district with a verification of the seniority credits to be ported and the teacher must initiate the verification process within 90 days of receiving a continuing appointment or continuing status in Langley. If the teacher does not initiate the process within 90 days, they forfeit the opportunity to port their seniority to Langley. To initiate the process and get the necessary forms, contact the Human Resources department at the board office, or phone 604-534-7891.
