consolidation or abolition of functions, curtailment of activities or
otherwise, positions in the competitive class are abolished or reduced
in rank or salary grade, suspension or demotion, as the case may be,

completed their probationary service shall be suspended or demoted, as
the case may be, before any permanent incumbents, and among such proba-
tionary employees the order of suspension or demotion shall be deter-
mined as if such employees were permanent incumbents.
