USE OF UNIT SENIORITY
Effective August 1, 1987, if applying the length of unit seniority would result in a greater amount of Past and/or Future Service than otherwise determined, then this unit seniority will be used to determine your Past and/or Future Service as follows:
- The unit seniority is determined in accordance with the collective bargaining agreement.
- For purposes of determining the amount of your pension benefit, if any, in accordance with the formula as described on page 3, your total unit seniority will be subtracted from your retirement date to determine an "adjusted unit seniority starting date," from which Past and/or Future Service will be credited. If applicable, Base Pay received from the adjusted unit seniority starting date to the date of your retirement will be used to determine the amount of your pension benefit, if any, in accordance with the formula described on page 3.
- Effective January 1, 1992, the maximum amount of service otherwise determined in this alternative cannot be more than 40 years.
- Unit seniority is used only if it results in an amount of service credit which is more than the amount of service credit otherwise determined under the Plan.
