How does seniority work ?

I know someone who has been working for a Government job building schools since 2002. Theres been other people hired after him with less time working for the company. This job works on and off due to weather and other things. He's been there longer but these past few weeks other employees have been called back leaving him to be called only for four days of work while the others work full time. What is the law on Seniority?

It depends on the union contract which will define how seniority is to work. There is no law pertaining to senority.
