Are contractors and/or locums keeping to their rate agreements?

Started about 2 months ago

"If someone enters into a contract, it is legally binding", David Reissner - chair of the Pharmacy Law & Ethics Association - wrote in a blog for C+D. 

While examples have been shared of instances where both locums and pharmacy contractors have failed to keep to the agreed hourly rate, contractors have told C+D they are now considering some options following reports of a minority of locums’ “tactics” to obtain higher rates. 

What is your experience? Are locums keeping to their rate agreement? And vice versa, are contractors keeping to theirs?
