what i have seen thru years of using linux and non lvm, is that each partition
has it's own '.trash' directory. this seems to be because when a file is
'trashed', inode info is move from original directory to '.trash' directory
along original directory name. this saves having to physically move file to
'.trash' directory.

being that you are using lvm format, i would suggest that if you want a
common '.trash' to each user, eliminate '/home/homeWork' partition and make
'/home' a larger partition from start with '/homeWork' as a sub directory
under '/home'.

being that you are using lvm, you may still get a separate '.trash'. i have
never used lvm, [concept is nice, but do not care for it's problems] so i can
not give a more positive answer to your desire.
