It will be interesting to see as I don't think any of those units would be carrying surplus staff, the smaller units rarely do.

Strange how quickly the market can turn, only a short time from it being a definite controllers market! My guess is now ATCOs will stay at their present units for some time, any movement will probably be caused by retirements causing vacancies. The question is will airports simply absorb the tasks and carry on with less people to save cash?
And those rumours are?....
