    I know when you transfer from one hub to another you lose seniority (for bidding, vacation selections etc). I was also told that you go to the bottom of the list if there are layoffs. I may be transferring during the peak season as there will be many openings. My question is this....normally after peak there are layoffs (mostly new employees who have not made seniority), so me being at the bottom of the list (at new hub) am I vulnerable to these layoffs or are these layoffs targeting new hires who haven't made book (as there is no union protection)? I know many peak season new hires are hired knowing they may not be offered a permanent position after the holidays, and that is why I am wondering if I am somehow exempt from the post peak season layoffs. If anyone who has transferred during xmas season can reply I would appreciate it!
