That depends on the negotiation of a company's specific General Contract. Usually, it's as I've described in the "plain vanilla" state, but both sides may add stuff as long as the other side agrees that it's a good idea. Often there's a "THE COMPANY may employ no fewer than X dancers, nor more than X+Y." clause. Specific rank structure is left to negotiation. A director may want to leave himself a "bail-out" option. Or the union could insist on it. It depends on what's at issue in a given company over a given time.
