Filling of Positions. All eligible employees under Section 3 who have made a timely interest bid, and meet the minimum qualifications, shall be given consideration and may be appointed to the opening prior to the consideration of other non-interest bidding applicants and prior to filling the vacancy through other means. The Appointing Authority shall not be arbitrary, capricious, or discriminatory and must have a legitimate business reason to reject all of the interest bidders. Seniority of the interest bidders shall not be a factor in appointing employees from among the interest bidders. All interest bidders shall be notified orally or in writing, which may include electronic mailing, as to the acceptance or rejection of their interest bid in a timely manner. If the vacancy is not filled by an employee under this Section, then it shall be filled in the following order:
Filling of Positions.

However, the Corporation, may at any time before the position is filled, change its determination and abolish the position.
Filling of Positions. In filling the positions covered by this Agreement, presently employed nurses shall be given first consideration on the basis of length of service as a registered nurse, provided that the skill, ability, experience, competence and qualifications of the applicants are not overriding factors.

The Employer shall make every effort to facilitate the movement of nurses to their desired shifts. In no event shall a nurse be held back from transfer to a new position for more than ninety (90) days, unless an extension is made by mutual agreement with the nurse involved.
