    Try and keep calm mike I understand your frustration first you need to establish if your jobs gone before you get carried away mate you may still need an income not matter how unreliable while you plan your next move with lots of turnover of staff things will come to a head and the contractors rep will suffer

    Hopefully mike you have gained a few things from this like cscs cards subcontractors cards etc meaning your in a position to approach other companies for work would recommend you get hold of a book called the streetwise subbie available from amazon should give you some good tips on managing agreements with contractors also there is a link on the site to window cleaning round for sale which as a people required section which may benefit you at the moment as would expect you wish to get some cash rolling in
