These negotiations are with new GM Allan Blake (ex UK) who seems to have stalled the negotiations.
You surprise me......

Smile really

212man,
Glad too see your surprised. :>)

I thought Bristow was run by an Aussie now? Ex Managing pilot I thought.
Have Bristow won the Woodside contract?

If you know something different, or believe posts here to be incorrect: why not post sensibly and enlighten us all? PhoneWind and all your other friends are more than welcome to post here, but deriding the site without contributing anything of value smacks of childish schoolyard taunts.

Remove what? Your post, or some unspecified comment that you disagree with?

BBanger,

BHA was being run by an Aussie until fairly recently.

Rod Pulford, who was the ex Managing Pilot took over as the General Manager when the Australian part of the business was part of SEABU (South East Asia Business Unit).

My understanding is that when the Aussie part of the business became a business unit in its own right it required a Director and the position of General Manager became redundant.

As such, the current Director of BHA is Allan Blake who is indeed from the UK.

Woodside contract yet to be awarded. Sometime in May I believe.

Woodside Contract?

Last date I heard for Woodside was 11 May.

Should be very interesting either way.

My money is on Bristow for the lions share.

Although also heard that HNZ bought the half built and then abandoned new Jayrow hangar.

I believe that part of the reason for the delay in the current UCA talks is BHA waiting on the result of the Woodside contract.

Not really sure why this would make a difference as regardless of our manning, the pilots remaining would be looking for a decent improvement in conditions.

BHA like any well managed company, will presumably only keep the number of pilots it requires to fulfil its contractual requirements - no more, no less. So the winning or losing of this, or any other contract shouldn't affect the claims of the BHA pilots.

HNZ Pay / Conditions

They are the same as Bristow. When formulating the EBA, HNZ had to at least match or better the Bristow one or else they would of struggled to get pilots.

Didnt stop them tho trying to pay the NZ guys the same wage as if they were still in NZ

Not correct on the half built Jayrow hangar in KTA. It has not been bought by HNZ although a buy and lease back deal has apparently been arranged with another party. Jayrow will be using it soon.

Another inquiry...

-How does the Touring and Non-Touring work cycles work within Bristow Australia

-Is most of the work based in Karratha?
-Other bases and work cycles

Cheers, re-ject

I hear HNZ/HA are ramping up recruitment due to winning a big contract or so the rumour goes. Anyone heard of any contracts being won?

Fishing heliringer....?...

I rather doubt anyone will be ramping up until Woodside is announced sometime soon.

Wooside deferral

My sources tell me that the Woodside contract has been deferred (surprise surprise) until... well who would know?

Will make the BHA PEA negotiations interesting if nothing else. Given AB's insistence that the Woodside contract be sorted out before the PEA is dealt with seriously, it makes the likelihood of protected IA perhaps just about inevitable given the current agreement ends 1 Jul.

Q4 2010 Bristow Group Inc. Earnings Conference

All,

Check out Bristow

It's clear that BHA is performing well. Of interest, apparently BHA is close to an agreement with its pilots over wage increases - at least this is what investors have been led to believe.

Anyone got any info to support / reject this?

fish Rejected

papa68,
It's rejected from what I hear. Looks like BHA management are in for a shock.

I hear that Bristows pilots will get the result of the strike ballot today?

Any truth in the rumour that they'll be striking next week?
