Think of the positives. Target Zero should be on target whilst they've downed tools.

Not sure this is dance I would want to join at this time, the new CEO will walk away from Nigeria. It is upsetting his synergies.

The link provided by 212man states that Bristow have sacked 100 pilot and engineers. Striking appears to have backfired somewhat.

Strikes only ever happen for one reason: because people feel they are being treated like sh1t. Sack them and you prove them right.

100 drivers and mechs is a fair few, what happened to their contracts they’re supporting? Maybe there’s something not being reported?
