Yes, but!

The "contract" says that FJA will "endeavour" to roster 10 days in one block, but they have recently said that that's not going to happen. So 8 days it is.

Surely you are talking about the EU, or the IMF, or the WEF (or indeed even our cousins - both north and south of about 49 degrees north - over in the Americas)??
