Our tilers are subcontracting to the main roofing contractor. It was very hot last week and after all I'd said I did give them plenty of drinks and they had a table and sun umbrella to take a break at. On Thursday we did have a minor disagreement about something however and they then took an extended break and left at the end of the day leaving stacked tiles and a ladder on the roof. On Friday the main man came to apologise, saying the subbie had hurt his back - possiible, its been tough work - but would be back tomorrow, were we alright with them coming on the Bank Holiday. He knew about the disagreement and we both rolled our eyes a bit. Then he came and took down the ladder and the stack of tiles because it was very windy and I could imagine all sorts of disasters. He thought if the subcontracted tilers didn't turn up - they are paid by the day - he might not be able to get one of his other teams to work on a Bank Holiday and they've got a load of work on so …….. So, what will happen tomorrow. Does the subbie want the work - it should just be one more day for him -maybe he started another job on Friday, did he really hurt his back, is he sulking, will the main contractor get a couple of his regular lads to work. What do you think.
