Hello fellow arrsers Well there was a briefing this weekend at my unit who was on a weekend camp. Speaking to the guys that attends it it seems, as they ahve been told that there is nothing the TA can do for 18 months with regards to the new legislation. they was given 3 options really 1) Leave the TA 2) Take leave of abscence for upto 18 months 3) find a new job which seems a very silly way to deal with it i just wondered what other units are doing, how bad this might be affecting them. Out of my sqaudron alone i know of 4 -5 guys that are affected by it. not saying thats a big loss but at least 3 are those are regular attenders, which can be quite a loss. It will also stop us recruiting from the lorry driver community which i think could be a loss for the TA. i really can not beleive how this has been allowed to happen at all the goverment in my view had a due care to those TA soldiers and in my view they have been let down. by telling them to leave put there careers on hold for 18 months till it can be sorted or get a new job is wrong, getting a job is hard enough as it stands especially a job that pays like it does for some of these guys. but telling them to change it when its all some people have known for 10+ years. seems very very wrong. so any help & advice is appreciated, just for info i am not a vocational driver, just concerened for some good freinds i have.
