Via the Fish Gang tip-line
Key members of the Building Services Contractors are meeting Wednesday to decide the fate of El Presidente Patrick Lee-Lo.
Sparks will be flying as the BSC’s governing body try to figure out whether it’s better to cut their losses and tuck into their share of the millions in the BSC’s bank account, or let Paddy continue to abuse the franchise sector which their members are now a part of and, in the process, bring down the BSC.
Either way, it’s not looking good for Paddy, especially as a major player is starting to emerge and is being tipped to sort out the BSC debacle once and for all. According to industry sources this is OCS’s MD James Fletcher.
Fletcher will want answers as to why Paddy has attacked the $20 billion franchising industry when franchising is a key part of OCS’s growth has been achieved through franchising.
It won’t have been missed by members of the Fish Gang that that the BSC operates a franchise operation called CHEMWASH which is run out of the BSC. They ask how El Presidente on one hand attacks the franchise industry, yet on the other allows one to be run out of the BSC office.
Then there’s the Australian Directors of Spotless Services, who will be wondering if it’s better to take their share of the dosh, currently estimated at near on half a million dollars. They’ll be especially pissed to hear that they may have been tucked multiple times by not only the unions for membership fees, but potentially their own BSC if they didn’t complete a renewal form correctly.
