Comcast Center Super Seniority List Ranking Your Comcast Communication Committee and Local #11 have been working together to develop a fair seniority rank order list
Brief History Local #11 was familiar with only about 20% of the Comcast Stagehands. In an effort to get to know all the workers at Comcast, what the skill set levels were, where the strengths and weaknesses of the workforce lie and what future training would be helpful. Local #11 and your Comcast Communication Committee developed a survey as a means to get to know you all better. Later it was discovered these surveys could be used as a tool to help develop your seniority list.
