Depends if hed already put his price in based on your normal rates with him as part of the package / build etc.

But at the very least he should have looked after you and made the job worth your while!

You should of asked the builder for a price and put your cut on it and get yourself a decent profit out of him as he does on you.

Builders who f**k do they think they are majority of builders think they now the lot some can't hold hammer I've done this that go on my nerves. Not running the very low percentage of good builders. But Id say thers more knob head builders than good.

Yeah that’s a bit underhanded. He’s not exactly wrong but he certainly isn’t right either! And if you don’t need the work from him then adios amigo!
That builder 100%wrong he should pay him extra for that job. Builders are like mp thinking of ther own pocket.

Yeah morally I’d agree. Anyway he’s shot himself in the foot, he’s not got a plasterer now and karma dictates the next one will be shite

imo if you’re already on a job for a builder then you should respect that and shouldn’t be putting you’re number out, but if you have recommended that builder to do a job for you then it should be on the understanding that all the Plastering works are given to you privately.

I think the 1st mistake is doing a reduced rate for the builder... I don't care if I plaster for a builder or joe public, i still get my day rate....

If I am on a job for a builder I would never give that customer a separate card, but as in this case I writing about this potential customer had nothing to do with him and seen my van outside and asked if I was the plaster which I acknowledged and they asked for my card which I think I am entitled to do, he was also driving his car with no other works van than mine, they had said they had other properties they wanted me to do .....so has now spoken to them and was probably going to ask me to plaster them at his rates keep the rest of the money ....rather than me getting the job myself and getting paid my rates

The builder is just being a cock....weather you were on his job or not,he doesn't own the rights to be given every job in the street.
You might be doing work for him but he doesn't own you .

at the very least he owes you a finders fee and there is nothing wrong with giving your card, different if you were working for a Plastering firm, he had no qualms about cutting you out so f**k him and any other builder that does the same
