Labour firm and Hollandia talk over £1m bill

THE MANAGING director of troubled Wembley labour agency Fast Track Site Services said it is in talks with steelwork contractor Hollandia to gain more £1 million he claims is owed to the company on the stadium project.

Alan Dwyer, the head of the Walsall-based agency, said: 'We are still trading at the moment but we are talking to Hollandia and Multiplex.'

Around 50 steel erectors at Wembley stopped work last week after Fast Track said it could not pay them. The men have now been directly employed by Hollandia, which claims it cannot pay Fast Track due to a financial dispute with Multiplex over the final bill for the delayed steelwork.

Steelwork firm William Hare has also taken on 15 Fast Track workers and is paying them directly.

Mr Dwyer added: 'The only people I am paying directly at the moment are the girls in the office. We want to get this sorted out and I hope we can.'
