I have heard today that the business mentioned in the comments about Don Tyler and Jim Dover has relocated from Bridlington to Hartlepool.

Do not have anything to do with them.

hammond100 in Redcar, United Kingdom said: What Don Tyler in Vernal has not told you about is the sheer number of suicides that he has on his conscience. This is because of his attitude towards everyone he knows and meets. He ran a business doing steel decking with Jim Dover, and several of their employees committed suicide. This business was based on Skippers Lane in Middlesbrough.

I have just discovered that the name of the company Don Tyler was running with Jim Dover was called Deck 'n' Steel Site Services Limited which was run from the Evans Business Centre on Skippers Lane, Middlesbrough.

They disappeared owing many hundreds of thousands of pounds to many cliants, and the business was part of the Carnaby Structures Limited business based in Bridlington. They had several other companies such as a company supplying building supplies and materials. This was called Equipt.

Don Tyler's has many suicides on his consience and his wife Jan Tyler presently works for DTW in Guisborough. Jim Dover drove his own wife to suicide.

I run a charity organisation which is presently based in the building where they occupied, and we are having to deal with all their former clients who constantly visit looking for their money.

I have had a visit from someone this morning who is owed £98,000 by them, and would be interested if anyone knows their whereabouts.

If you come across them, do not have any business dealings with them.

The business is now being run by Roger Phillips.

Overseas?,if your American look for a company that works in Canada to.More oil here than Saudi America.7k a month at a city job, Americans in the same company,same job, make 50% less,higher wages in the north and on camp jobs.
Note to U.S boarder guard jerks (Home land security);Canadians are not looking for under the table work in the U.S and are generally not a security risk

If your a U.S. citizen looking for work in canada, you have to go through a complete back ground check, finger printing etc.
If you have had a DWI chances are very thin you will be aloud to work in canada. All so, all canadians must be working in that field.
On the other hand all a canadian has too do is drive across the boarder go to a union hall or contractor no questions asked. THANK YOUR POLITICIANS FOR MAKING IT A ONE WAY STREET. The unions lobbied for this during busy (outage ) season.

Canada's the place to your north,and no we cant cross over and work.Remember that we are children of a common mother(sign at peace arch border),our political representatives,like yours do not work for or represent the people.It would be nice to have workers that speak English.Here it goes:if your white and speak English you can not cross from The U.S to Canada to work,or from Canada to the U.S to work or(soon)to visit or shop.

I have worked with alot of canadians threw out the north east and mid west, during the outage season and they didn't have too go through any back ground check. At the boarder they said they were visiting.
Couple years back the oil sands in alberta had a man power shortage, so i covered all the bases to help out my friends to the north,but what i had too go through on my own wasn't worth the trouble so i stayed home. I respected the laws that were in place. Not like the southern boarder in the U.S. these people will break all AMERICAN LAWS AT ANY COST, AND NOT RETURN HOME AS I WOULD HAVE AND THE CANADIANS DID THAT I WORKED WITH.
Try and stay warm in alberta i know the winters can be brutal

Unions are not required to find you work.
They train and represent there members.
Contractors call the union hall and then the dispatcher contacts it's members for dispatch.
If you would like too know what your international rep. makes go to unionfacts.com

scotty in Schleswig, Germany said: This may be a stupid question, but I know a guy who got paid $250,000 for 6 months of welding work in Germany. He got the job from a guy who was getting paid $3 million for 6 years of work in Africa. I'm just wondering - is this typical of overseas welding jobs? If anyone knows of someone who has done this sort of gig, how did they get it and what skills were needed?

utter bull, I work as a welder in Germany and get 15 euro an hour

but this is the same welding work my husband is doing in Italy and he is receiving 7£ per hour.

Displaced Welder in Calgary, Alberta

Yal are all a bunch of dumb asses in Laurel, Mississippi said: kellogg brown an root (kbr) did not get bought out they are still the same company an still called kbr my brother works for them as for yall "welders" who obviously dont know a dam thing im 22 years old an two weeks ago I got back from a 3 month hitch to south africa $1,850 a day $2,450 I was on a lay barge tig/ flux 12 inch 1000 wall

There are people who are born billionaires and make over million a day and never have to weld or work.There are engineers and doctors that are no doubt smarter then you that make less then $50 a day.Large company's that get bought out by "to big to fall corporations" often keep their name.

We are working trades people,and as such most of us have respect for those that work hard for low pay,be it a welder, janitor or a garbage man.If you earn decent pay,good on you,but get over yourself.

We make $49 an hr on our arm, $15 an hr on our rig, and $102.50 a day per diem. I only worked 9 months, but we work no less than 60hrs/wk. On one job we were working close to 110 hrs/wk! Why go to some place that sucks when you can stay in the good ole USA and make good $$$$! Get a rig setup, contact the Local 798, and fill out an app! GO UNION! Buy American, and Stay Proud!

I have welded pipe tube plate carbon stainless inconell chrome p5 aluminum exc all processes for many years I would like to join the pipe liners next year when my truck is ready and I finish giving this year to God as I owe him great thanks for my life and where he has lead me today.
