Thumbs up BHA 2010 pilots agreement

I have heard that Bristow Australia pilots are going for another 25% increase in salaries.
I remember it was not that long ago that they were going for 30% and we all said they were mad for even trying to get that much and they got it. However i do remember that it was only last year that they laid of a few pilots so it will be interesting to see how they go.

Does anyone know when there current agreement expires?

Bristow Profits

Bristow Australia posted a 25.5% margin for the third financial quarter!!

I guess the Pilots claim for another big payrise is justified given that level of profit?

If the Bristow guys can get a 30% payrise through last time, then why not do it again?

From what Ive heard, they lead the way as far as salaries go in Oz , and as a result, pay and conditions have improved for others across the industry.

Now where do I apply?

I hope the Perth rental market doesn't suck too much out of the favourable salary...

A company paying pilot’s top dollar and turning a good profit. That can’t be right! Can it?

Imagine how good they’d go if they took a leaf out of a few other Australian operators “song books”:
They could save some money on accommodation, reduce “away allowances”, etc. Sure some pilots might leave, but it couldn’t cost more than A$100K to get a new pilot endorsed and up to speed and meanwhile they could be saving hundreds of dollars.


(Tibbsy - Touring positions are available, so choose your favourite rental market Me, I'll be at the beach, East coast, thanks.)

I have a friend who flies with Bristow Australia and he speaks very highly of the company in general. He said there is excellent and thorough training, very good pay and conditions, and overall a great bunch of guys to tour with...he said you'd go a long way to find a better flying position anywhere else!

On the touring front, he had to move over to Perth from the east coast like many others before him and said Perth is not so bad, though it is a little overpriced in some respects for housing thanks to the mining and oil/gas industry workers generally earning big dollars. To compare, friends of mine operating various bits of machinery in the mines earn similar amounts ($130-160k) to the captains...that is how much the mine/oil/gas guys can earn!!!

Apparently, the only people who will be toured from anywhere will be the contract captains who arrive on the doorstep already trained and ready to go. All others applying for full-time positions will be required to move to Perth to accept a position, unless they have a type endorsement and have either 250 or 500hrs PIC on that type. Someone who works there will have to confirm the exact hour requirements.

And adding that if you're over the age of 50, with all the right qualifications, you will still be turned down by Bristow HR.... been there

New recruits

I see they had a big advertisement for pilots in January. Did they win a new contract/getting new machines? Or is it just their yearly replacements?
Anyone know how many guys (Captains & Coeys) they're looking for?

Bristow are in the process of sending out thank-you but no thank-you letters, so if you have not heard anything yet, it may be looking good

Bristow's reply to my application.
thanks but no thanks
. Had well in excess of the minimum requirements too

There's another Aussie helicopter site where people are saying that there were well over 150 applications for the Bristow positions. I guess it was to be expected - this was the first off shore advertisement for quite a while.

Congrats to the applicants who were shortlisted.

Bristow Oz Pay Deal Stalls

Bristow Australia and it's Pilot Committee are in pay negotiations at the moment. These negotiations are with new GM Allan Blake (ex UK) who seems to have stalled the negotiations.

The current agreement ends on July 1 after which time the pilot body is entitled to start the process for protected industrial action. I believe there is serious consideration as to what protected action will be undertaken at this time.

What effect will this action have on the clients of Bristow Australia?

What effect will this action have on the workforce?
and
Will this action give Bristow competitors the chance to move in on some of the work to fill the gaps?

Action frillier

Wow this sounds like it could be made into a action frillier movie of some kind. I will watch this thread with interest.

The Ozzies should be use to dealing with the proverbial "Snake in the Grass". The UK work force suffered under said person.
The reason he is there in the job says it all........terms & conditions will be hard fought and eroded away along with morale. Good luck.
