    Taking back the industry



    About time. Lets see how effective they are.

    There is huge money for them. It can be the only reason i can think of why they would want to taking back the industry. Lots of mandelas, hence the reason the DOL have past the buck once again. Nothing in it for the DOL , tried the private contractor which back fired. Lets see were this goes.

    The NBCEISA is on a drive to deploy more inspectors to identify "pirate" contractors and either enforce the collective agreement if they are properly qualified and appropriately registered, or issue cease and desist orders if they are not...
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Why not just reinstate the onbudsman with all his powers? It used to be great, it hardly ever went to court. The client phoned him up, he did his inspection and called a on site meeting with the contractor. The evidence and regulations determined the course of action. Withing days the contractor had to fix his mess at his expense or face steep fines or jail time. Worked like a charm. The CPA does not come close and neither will these guys. A man on the ground in the thick of things with the clout to close the chancers down makes short work of them very quickly. A jack of all trades gets his ass behind bars or a stiff enough fine to stop him thinking about doing it again. All within 21 days. Bring back the good old days, they don't have that name for nothing.

    I would be interested to know how much is in it for the NBCEIA, It must be a substantial figue to get them motivated.

    I think it is a great idea, just dont think the DOL passing the buck once again is the way to go about it.

    ^^^ Exactly what Sparks says. The key things that made the ombudsman work was that he had powers, and he was hands-on with a no-nonsense approach. Also had had no vested interest other than the regulations book.

    Also, thinking about it, since when was this part of the NBCEI's mandate?

    It isn't. At least when it comes to enforcing standards.

    The NBCEI's mandate is to enforce all aspects of the collective agreement - which does give a fair amount of scope.

    So if you are a "working employer" or any of the others you shall not observe the terms of this agreement and are excluded?
