The "directed letter" has finally worked its way on to my desk, it states that the pay increase should be noticed in April's pay statement. I was expecting to wait for months and then have the increase backdated. In any case, my pay hasn't increased, despite the new pay scale (published with the AFPRB 2009) saying my new salary is a good few quid more than 2008. Why is this? Am I being a mong? (I spent yesterday discussing LOAC so am somewhat dazed today) Your help gratefully received.
