Delay more to do with owners disagreeing on updating the fleet and who would pay for it than anything else

I think there are new developments to this soap opera.....as NHV is looking for AW169 TRE for blackpool.

Maybe this is the end of Babcock in Blackpool and NHV going strong in the UK.

If a contract is extended for one year...does not meant that the operator wont bid for the next one. Thats just how contracts are done......There no more life time contracts

But thanks for the imput.....

Ps. I did read the extension of the contract information

Iím pretty sure that NHV would be happy to take on any remaining Babcock employees who wanted to remain in Blackpool.

Just like the last time around.

There's a big difference between being "taken on" with a new contract and salary vs moving across under TUPE.

I suspect the change of type will give NHV the opportunity to argue TUPE doesn't apply.

Does anyone know the actual stance being taken by NHV?
