Well the portion you posted refers to when they actually bypass. The issue is that if the spot awarded will go to a 145 fo and they don't have a dash fo to bypass them they will just leave the spot vacant. Thus waiting for more dash fos to reach 1000 hours.
The cba does allow for reducing the number of open vacancies after a bid is posted and I'm assuming this is their rational for choosing to just not award those 8 spots.
Like I said the union guys are already talking with the company so hopefully something can be hashed out. Because for those of us that gave up years at other carriers this definitely sucks.
