There are times when "talking from both sides of your mouth" are necessary but i believe there are fair, ethical ways, and subjects where this applies. For example we have learned that if the contract with the owner calls for a completion date of June 1, we create a project schedule for our subcontractors that represents a completion date of May 10 and we dont let the actual date out to anyone. This is only good practice that benefits us , the owner, and the subcontractor. In the example in the article above the Contractor was just plain unethical and THAT in unacceptable.

I have worked for Key general contractors in the construction of Key projects in Silicon Valley and other projects in Northern California . We always regarded subcontractors as key members of our contractor packages that enables us to obtain contracts either competitively or in our design and build projects. We were successful in having subcontractors return to either negotiat Projects with us or bid competively.
As a general contractor/consultant, my feeling is that subcontractors play a key role and that the contractor has an obligation to take care of the relationship. In the case cited, the general contractor should have advised subcontractor of their negotiations with owner.
Presently many general contractors are just brokering subcontractors who gt jobs based upon lowest price, and if this was the circumstances in the case cited, I can understand that they would not have had a long term relationship with the subcontractor.
Contractors have to recognize that how they treat subcontractors affects reputation of course and ultimately the subcontractor prices they get. In the construction industry reputation is everything and to hear of the action this contractor followed is very dissapointing as this type of action is what gives other general contractor a bad reputation with the public.

Howdy would you mind letting me know which web host you're working with?
I've loaded your blog in 3 different internet browsers and I must
say this blog loads a lot faster then most. Can you suggest a good internet hosting provider at a honest price?
Kudos, I appreciate it!
