I imagine it's because they are short staffed, regardless of the reason...

It's like that everywhere. Just politics.. nothing to do with (good) management.

Back in the days of ATCO Cadet Courses, NATS would start 3 intakes per year, then found (mid 70s) that they were training too many so 'held' some intakes. What happens 5 years later? The 'glut'of older controllers, mostly ex wartime aircrew, suddenly began retiring at the same time and hey presto there was a shortage.
