  9. Important re. Preference for Work • Whenever your department hired a brand new lecturer, it should raise a red flag! • If the new lecturer is assigned units that ANY 3-yr or 1-yr part-time lecturer is qualified to teach who is not yet at 15 units/full time, then it is a preference for work contract violation • Also, lecturers who lose work due to being bumped have the same contractual right to bump a lecturer lower in preference for work 27
