If you've been here for a while and you are a driver and you want to become a dockworker for whatever reason , do you keep your seniority? Do you go to the top of the dockworker pay scale? What about vacation time and retirement contributions? Just curious to know from someone who may have experienced this first hand. Keep in mind that a dockworker that decides to become a driver keeps his seniority from dockworker to driver so you would think the reverse would be true as well.
