  4. So in real speak.........What we getting? I cant be arrsed trawling through all that.
  5. can someone cut and paste me a copy of the lower band junior and senior rank new pay scales etc...also has the resettelment grant afps 75 GONE UP?
  6. please..
  7. If fairness I was pretty cross when I heard it was a below inflation 3.3% however I gather than increased payments to those on ops means an increas closer to 9%.

    All well and good but I still feel 3.3% is a kick in balls from the Blair and Brown double act.

    Editied to add:

    However in considering the payrise other public servants are getting we have done fairly well so I am keeping my head down.

  9. Where do you get this 9% from? I understand the operational allowance - approx £2200 for 6 months in Afghan/Iraq/Bosnia but it's not a pay rise for the forces... Its a tax free bonus for being in an operational environment.

    Unless I'm missing something...
  10. look at the scale that your on and divide by 365 to find your daily rate and compare it to what you on now.
  11. Ok, I'm a Cpl band 7 High Range (have been for 2 years) currently on £81.03 per day.

    Pay rise works out to be £83.76 which equates to 3.3%

    Like I said, where's this 9%?

    The media is quick to point out that we've got 9% but this is only the bottom 2 pay scales ie for the newly trained lads (n lasses) - They don't mention the rest of us (anyone above band 3 Pte gets 3.3%).

    They also don't say is that although Nurses 'only' got 1.9% they've had about 12% over the last 3-4 yrs.

    Therefore, a newly qualified Nurse gets around £19k, same goes for a new Fireman, yet ours get around £15k to be sent to Iraq/Afghan/Bosnia n get shot at or blown up by mines/suicide bombers...

    It seems the government are ignoring the warnings so more people are gonna have to sign off before anything's done.

    PS... I'm not infantry, but I agree with the FRIs for them.
  12. 3.3 is above Govt Inflation, 3.3 is more than fair compared to nurses etc. I would love a big figure pay raise and so would my bank manager, as far as I can read it we are getting a real cash figure increase in our pockets, pennies only but still real money!
  13. Have you actually reads in-between the lines on this? Fine, a pay rise of 3.3%........0.3% (or maybe a little more above inflation), however, take into consideration of the accommodation increase, the food increase and the "utilities" increase. Do your sums and work it out, some will be happy, the rest, just live with it. This budget as always will hugely benefit some and do absolutely nothing for the rest........retention........NO!
  14. At the risk of getting it wrong, because I don't have the figures to hand, it is only new entrants and Private soldiers who receive a 9% increase. LCpls and above get 3.3%.

    If you read the Report, it recognises that the lowest ranks receive less than they could if they worked for the emergency services. But it would have cost too much to change matters, might have upset the unions and would have blown a huge hole in Gordon's plans for the future. The report also records that retention slumped last year and shows signs of getting worse, and whilst recruiting has improved, it will never catch up with the overall shortfall. Keep working the 45+ hrs/week that you are working and everything will be just fine! LOL.
