not supporting them, and mostly devils advocate, but technically, THEY didn't fire those workers.Based on those links,
- Those workers were hired by a maintenance company with a (and i quote from one of those articles) "long-standing maintenance contract"
So, just like any contact work, contacts end. They arent guaranteed full time employment, and they dont come with the same kind of employment guarantees (and as such, often have much higher pay rates )
If the new maintenance contractor who CUB is outsourcing its maintenance to know chooses to (or has to *shrug*) have lower pay rates, thats not really CUB's problem/fault
(its the same as when I hear complaints about contractors or contractor employees who work in mining, getting paid massively above what 'regular' people earn for the same wage, and they contracts are cancelled or come to an end.. its one of those risk/rewards about contract work or working for a contractor)
