BRISTOW UPDATE

Thank you to all members who voted in the ALAEA’s recent survey to gauge the view of members in response to Bristow seeking cost reductions including possible cuts to salary rates and conditions enshrined in the current Bristow Engineers Agreement.

Bristow Update

There has been further consultation with Bristow senior management over the last week. An initial teleconference meeting occurred on 26 July when the Company informed the two unions and the EC reps that the Company was facing an increasingly difficult financial situation and would need to further reduce the number of engineers with a reduction of up to 10 positions likely over the next few weeks.
