I am an Infantry Sjt, holding the appointment of MTWO in an Armoured Infantry Battalion. I have held this appointment now for 15 months. I was reported on in my last CR as holding this appointment, and carrying out this job on Operations. My CR was an A Grade, with a strong promotion recommendation. The CO placed me in the top 10 Sjts on which he reports on. Things were looking bright to say the least. My last CR was the 5th A grade CR and the 4th one recommending me for promotion. I thought this was all very well, a Sjt doing a Warrant Officers job. Six years seniority in current rank, there is me thinking I should be in line for promotion. A few weeks ago I discovered that my job LSN is being held by an Acting WOII on the "black economy" This only came to light in my units preparation for JPA. Dont really know if this affects anything? Then comes the showstopper!!! The results of the promotion board have been published on the Armynet, and yes you have guessed it. I did not get selected for promotion! ( I am currently away from my unit on a course) This is not so much a case of sour grapes, more a question as to what my options are. My Boss, has said not to worry, the CoC are addressing it. What ever that means? I enter the last 2 years of my service in October this year, so I do not have time on my hands. So next years board is "too little too late". I have been told in the past year that I cannot get pay of higher rank, as the appointment is 2 ranks up from mine, also I cannot claim pay of higher rank of CSjt for the same reason. Our RCMO is currently out of station on course, so I have not had any contact with him regarding my options. Any constructive advice will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
