Another fine pay mess you've got me into.

  1. HELP!! PLEASE!!!

    I am in a specialist role and entitled to the SP pay that goes along with it, magically it was stopped in Jan, after much deliberation with the men in the towers, i was told it is sorted. That was the beggining of last month and yet again this month there is no specialist pay and no back pay. What are my options on this, as we are told we are not allowed to contact JPAC ourselves and it all seems to be going around in circles. In the meantime leaving me and my family in great financial difficulty.


    I understand that this may attract banter, but please think before you post as sometimes your comments are not welcome. Sometimes rather destructive than constructive.
  2. You are entitled to an emergency payment. This will cause considerable nause, but that's tough, that's what they (agc) get paid for. Tell them you'll be doing it every month till it's sorted.
  3. Joe tried that, but got a big FO pill, am on the verge of a service complaint and involving the AWS.

    Many thanks for you advice though
  4. The reason you got the pill was because it causes the lazy ***** to have to do some work. Don't take no for an answer. Get someone in a position of authority to back you up if needs be (padres are good at shit-stirring, in more ways than one). Hopefully someone will give you a JSP reference to hit them with.
  5. Thanks Joe, any takers with the JSP heads up on EPICs if its what its called.

    I was going to say that an SC won't solve anything in the short term but actually the threat of writing one may well spur somebody into action. Do you not have a senior or even a Pl Comd (or equivalent) who can go into bat for you?
  7. EPIC sounds right. It's in JSP 754, but as I don't have dii at present, I can't give you any more than that.
  8. Cheers Joe will fire it up in a moment :)
  9. Dont tell them you're in shit street financially because theyve mucked up your specialist pay though. That will get the same treatment as "you shouldnt budget for LOA/LSA/whatever" from them,no doubt.
  10. Cheers, all the Adults have been batting already and got the old "its been sorted", The problem lies with Glasgow so i was told this morning. Mind you a SC got a mate of mine his money near as immediately.
  11. Haven't said that to them............. at the end of the day though it is part of my ROS in my job i have to give them so many years in my role and they give me what is meant to be extra pay every month and they cant seem to get it right.............Trust me i am not the only one in the same boat.

    Got you. Start honking about putting an SC together, that usually gets people's hoops puckering up in a big way.
  13. All the best anyway,its ridiculous things like this still happen these days.
  14. I know, if it was civvi street it would not happen, if it did, it would be sorted before the main pay run.

    Which i am told APC cant do as spec pay can only go on the retro run?!

    I just hate it as people up there dont seem to give a oss about what we do for or wages................... as long as they are alright, thats ok!
