I think that it is shocking that we have so many permanently downgraded personnel within the AMS. They are a drain on their Corps and trades and bump the numbers up when those in the Ivory Towers at AMD and MCM Div are looking at Operational Pinch Point Trades and retention/recruitment bonses etc. as well as leaving the same people to take up the deployments. My humble trade is undermanned by 35% but of the 65% we do have, a staggering 21% of them are downgraded! MCM Div need to have a bloody good clear out and have a rethink about giving continuance to those who are permanently biffed. It would highlight the actual operational strength of the trades and what a pish poor state we are in. Anyway, your thoughts.
