morning all new to the forum
just trying to get a straight answer to the issue of being mobilised is it completely voluntary, or is it expected of you.
the reason im asking is one ta centre gave the impression if your name is called you go the other said totaly the opposite
also im thinking of rejoining the ta
now im not saying i will not go but would like the choice
any info would be great
Basically the current policy is that you can volunteer through your unit and provided your employer (and c of c?) is happy you can mobilise. However the law still provides the ability for them to just send you the brown envelope and mobilise you when they like. They just avoid doing it so as not to disrupt too many lives, and cut down on appeals.
It's supposed to be "intelligent mobilisation" - the head shed ask who would object to going and volunteers are drawn from the pool of the willing. At least that's what happened to me.
