They can hold one back for as long as they want, that piece of crap "national agreement (to screw the workers) allows them to get cheap labor and keep it that way forever, I' know MES, Tradesman etc that are stuck under such classification for more than 6 years, I think its kind of OK when all your co-workers are labeled the same but when working side by side with BTJ's, doing the same work for less money becomes a problem.
