Person A started two years ago; stayed casual/PRN in a different department up until about 2-3 months ago, when they transferred to a part-time position on the same unit as person B.
Person B started one year ago on the same floor, after orientation, as of December of 2012 they have been part-time.
Casual/PRN does NOT have bargaining rights.
Part-time does have bargaining rights.
Person A and B both applied for the same position on their floor and the person chosen for the position is based on seniority.
So which seniority is it; corporate or bargaining unit?

It depends on the contract but in my experience it is Bargaining unit seniority not facility seniority.
SO the casual/per diem is considered an outside contractor and therefore an outside hire that has no seniority.
In this instance ...person B would be hired.
