The rehire list provides laid off employees with preference for rehire in accordance with the terms of their collective bargaining agreement. To be placed in a position, individuals on the rehire list must meet the skill requirements for the position.
The employing official makes the final selection. It is important to have an up-to-date candidate profile in the UW's employment website so that your job skills and experience are properly taken into account.
You can be removed from a rehire list if you refuse offers of employment or are hired into a position, in accordance with your collective bargaining agreement.
Most collective bargaining agreements contain a provision for a "rehire trial period." The rehire trial period gives the employee and the employing official time to determine whether the position is a good match. If there is provision for a rehire trial period, either the employee or supervisor can initiate a return to the rehire list.
If you are hired from a rehire list and complete the rehire trial period, if there is one, your name is removed from all other rehire lists.
