Librarian unit members affected by a layoff may exercise bumping rights within their job title within any of the University Libraries. Bumping rights shall be exercised in accordance with the provisions of this Article. Librarian unit members choosing not to exercise their bumping rights remain eligible for recall consistent with the provisions of this Article.
Librarian unit members shall serve a probation period of ninety (90) days in a new position whether such placement is due to filling a vacancy, exercising a bump, or as a result of a recall, except that an employee who bumps or is recalled into the same job title within the same department shall not be required to serve a probation.
Probation can be extended, at the option of the University, up to an additional ninety (90) days. Failure of a librarian unit member to satisfactorily complete the probation period shall result in the librarian unit member being placed on a recall list for up to one (1) year. If the librarian unit member is recalled and again fails probation, such librarian unit member's employment at the University shall be terminated and all layoff and recall rights shall cease.
