“Let them eat cake” – BSCNZ reports to members


While the level of troughing varies, in general, troughers are the same wherever you go.

They have this sense of entitlement and believe that they deserve the perks.

Scumbag unions the world over have been exposed for diving into the trough and lavishing it up is flash places around the world.

My good friend Patrick Lee-Lo, El Presidente of the Building Service Contractors, certainly enjoys the trough provided by his cleaning members. By the looks of things Kimberly Clark’s Lillian Small also enjoyed her foray into the trough via a visit to New York.   Read more »

A tip-line message to the Government

Yesterday I posted a photo of our friend, El Presidente Patrick Lee-Lo, his new travelling sidekick Lillian Small and the BSC king-pin Bob King over in New York.

Despite the short week with many taking an extra few day’s leave, the post resulted in the following being sent into the tip-line.

Dear Cameron,

I have read with interest your ongoing blog posts about the Building Service Contractors New Zealand and their preferred position for government tenders. As a small company in the service sector, it appalls me that the National Government has allowed this situation to continue.

I’m keen to grow my business and would like to apply for government tenders, but as a small business I do not want to have to fork over hard-earned revenue to an organisation (BSCNZ) that, in my view, offers very little to me or my company.

I was very interested to see the Government undertake a review of the BSCNZ membership requirement, and hoped that small NZ companies like mine would have an equal opportunity to win new business by way of government contracts.

To see the BSCNZ managers fly around the world, secure in the knowledge they have government contracts all tucked up for their paid-up member’s benefit, is nothing but offensive to those who want to stand on the merits of their own work and service offering.   Read more »

Project Revitalisation – BSC iceberg moment imminent


The adage that sunlight is the best disinfectant always bears fruit in the end. Trouble is that some people just don’t seem to see the rays of light beaming down on them.

Take our friends at the cartel-like Building Service Contractors NZ or BSC as they like to be known.

Its El Presidente Patrick Lee-Lo continues on as though nothing is wrong, oblivious to the weight of government bearing down on his little rort.

Even fresh faced Lillian Small, who it seems continues to work for Kimberley Clark, as well as under Paddy, is desperately trying to give the place a new spruce of paint by way of new newsletters.

In a rat-cunning attempt to give the Government the illusion of relevance, its PR advisers are pushing a “Project Revitalisation” – a clear sign and acknowledgement that they are out of date.

You can tell the PR b.s. when you see words like “excellent and innovative work”, “contribution made by our industry often flies beneath the radar when it comes to public recognition”, “BSC can provide even better value for our members”. Cough, splutter, hurl.    Read more »

Sponsors in the dark about BSCs problems, Ctd


My friends at the cartel like BSC really must be worried about their upcoming Clean Sweep Awards, particularly as the tip line continues to provide worrying accounts of dodgy dealings that may upset their principal sponsor Staples.

They’ve had to extend the deadline for entries into their ‘Clean Sweep Awards’, which is always code for whoops we haven’t got many entries so let’s push out the date and hope for some more to come in.

Sunlight is the best disinfectant, so best that Joe Taylor, Head of Facilities Solutions Australia gets to hear about the organisation he’s aligning Staples with.

He’s obviously fallen deep into El President’s Patrick Lee-Lo’s lap, gushing over the prospect the Staples will be able to hoe into the BSC membership – all 39 of them.  Read more »

Sponsors in dark over BSC’s problems

It’s never a good look for sponsors to be kept in the dark about problems facing the outfit they’re sponsoring.

Take our friends at the cartel-like Building Service Contractors New Zealand (BSC), headed by our close friend El Presidente Patrick Lee-Lo and his naïve off-sider Lillian Small.

Having done very little for its members over the last few years – aside from milking its 50 members out of $20k a year, newbie Lillian Small’s latest bright idea after the newsletter, is to re-start the ‘Clean Sweep Awards’.

Sponsoring the BSC awards is Staples New Zealand, part of the world largest office supply company.

The WO team had never heard of them before so had a look at Staples New Zealand’s website, and found interesting commentary, that we’re not sure fits with what we know about, and have seen with the BSC.

BSC’s Lillian Small caught telling porkies

Via the Fish-Gang tipline

The cartel like BSC really must have their head in the sand. That, or El Presidente Patrick Lee Lo has not let newbie CEO Lillian Small have access to the interweb.

Despite the fact that the Registrar of Incorporate Societies had to investigate the BSC; despite the shocking expose of the BSC by Rodney Hide; despite the discovery of scumbag SFWU tentacles into the very heart of the BSC; despite the BSC even failing its own Society rules and the constant contradictions from junket seeking President, its new CEO Lillian Small has now been caught out telling porkies.


Members of the Fish Gang have sent through Lillian Small’s first attempt to get more members to cough over $20,000 in membership fees via a new mail-out. Slight problem with the mail-out, it’s full of porkies.

Members of the Fish Gang have been rolling around the floor laughing in hysterics at comments like “self–regulating body that operates to a strict code of conduct”.   Read more »

El Presidente dumps Lillian Small into the deep end

Oh Lillian, why didn’t you conduct due diligence before signing up to the cartel-like Building Service Contractors gig?

Not only are you going to have to explain to existing and potential members you approach why the Police are concerned about the BSC, you’ll also have to front before Select Committees where MPs will naturally be inquisitive about the BSC’s and its members’ activities.

Even today, a key member company of the BSC – United Cleaning Services, is in the paper for all the wrong reasons. They even bang on in their website that they’re a major supporter of the BSC’s alleged industry training programme.

Lillian can you explain how a company that supposedly is a major supporter of your training programme, (headed by a member of the Fish Gang - Bob King), can now be a credible supporter of the BSC when its own workers let the team and cleaning industry down?   Read more »

Oh Lillian Small, what have you done?


Hold the phone, the cartel like Building Service Contractors or BSC for short has come out of the starting blocks like a bolt from the blue and hired Lillian Small to divert attention away from the shenanigans at the BSC.

While at first glance it could be described as a cunning plan by EL Presidente, Fish-Gang sources are indicating that it’s actually a cunning move to shift Patrick Lee-Lo out of the picture in the belief it’s harder to attack a pretty blond than a moustache wearing 70’s porn star look alike.  Read more »

Hold the horses – El Presidente breaks silence to tell porkies

The sound of the eagle must have got to the head of the dodgy cartel like Building Services Contractor (BSC), as today we find El Presidente Patrick Lee-Lo firing out a media release supporting his mates in the even dodgier SFWU.   Read more »

Fish Gang making a move

The tip-line has suddenly gone into overdrive over the last few days with reports that Patrick Lee-Lo’s time as El Presidente of the cartel like BSC is coming to an end.

I’ve heard that a meeting has been arranged by some of the fish-gang key members of the BSC who are very unhappy with Paddy and want answers.

Questions are also circulating about ToTal Property Services involvement in the BSC.

With WO spies everywhere, I’ll be watching this one closely.   Read more »
