Hate to be a stickler, but before I drop the hammer here I just want to be sure I am correct.The previous maintenance people are grandfathered in, so no deminished pay. And no he was not a full time employed sub. Even if that were true which it's not, how would he even be considered the best candidate over 10 plus year custodian when the position was supposedly custodial 8 out of 12 months?
Most if not all custodians have no desire to be a mower,(unless of course it is actually maintenence pay)so it is possible that no one with alot of years even gave a damn.
Didn't you or someone say earlier that it was originally posted as a drop in pay?
