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of relevance, its PR advisers are pushing a “Project Revitalisation” – a clear sign and acknowledgement that they are out of date.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

Via the Fish Gang Tipline

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 »

El Presidente Patrick Lee-lo goes rogue

Yesterday a post highlighted how the BSC was quietly about to tuck its busy members for potentially thousands of dollars more in membership fees.

Nasty tactic, but one used by the SFWU to fleece members more than once.

Some members of the fish-gang were aghast at the thought of other members who are busy running their businesses and struggling to pay their cleaners Paddy’s much vaunted 10c extra above the minimum wage, suddenly finding their membership fees to the BSC skyrocket upwards.

But Paddy’s been on his own personal crusade. Insiders say he was so incensed by the comments arch nemeses Crest Clean made before the Transport & Industrial Relations Select Committee, his moustache started twitching.

It’s not often you hear the call for evidence before a Select Committee to be “expunged in total from their verbal submission”. It’s a big call, and worthy of a closer look.

However there’s a slight problem for Paddy, and now for his bosses that sit on the Board of the BSC.   Read more »

El Presidente Patrick Lee-lo wants censorship


Whoah better hold the horses.

Looks like the BSC and El Presidente is all in a lather and has its knickers in a right twist about comments Crest Clean made before the select committee hearing Simon Bridges Employment Relations Amendment Bill.

See Paddy has copped it regularly in the chook for being the front man of a union supporting trade association that fleeces its members out of $20,000 pa. That and lavishing it up on junkets, and abusing NZ’s $20 billion franchise industry.

And while Labour and Green Taliban MPs exploit Parliament’s workers – who just happen to be Spotless Cleaning Service workers who are also members of the BSC and the dodgy SFWU, the cleaning industry’s so-called representative Patrick Lee-Lo has been as silent as a church mouse.

Or has he?    Read more »
