Words

I had a conversation with the boss of a building firm who were working at our property. I was complaining of shoddy workmanship etc and he said he would have a word with them although he said he would have to careful as they are ??????? and are likely to walk off the job if upset. The word he used was perfect although not one in regular use and I have never been able to recall it. It would be a word like PETULANT. I have looked on THESAURUS but no luck.

Any ideas anyone.

Mike.
