Can anyone shed any light on the army's inability to pay people? Can anyone tell me what options are open to me if the problems persist? Who's to blame, my unit or Glasgow? Being owed money from February of this year is no fun, especially when you took time out of your civvie job to undertake work for the T.A (and hence didn't get paid by your civvie employer either). Am I being a moaning t*at here, or does any other T.A soldier face these problems? Am I just supposed to suck it up and wait another month to hopefully be paid? Apparently I missed the cut off for pay role for February, even though I commenced work on the 11th. That's some f*cking cut off date! Then I was told that I'd get it at the end of March. Well, it's now the end of March and no pay again, not a penny. I imagine I'll be told to wait another month... At a time when the army are trying to bolster T.A numbers, you would think that in tandem with recruitment, they might also think about retention - and actually pay their soldiers properly and on-time! I'm just waiting now for the outcome of the possible upcoming fuel tanker driver strikes, I can almost here how the conversation will go: "Hi, I know we haven't paid you for two months, but you need to come in because you've a HGV licence" - To which my response will be "Blow-me right off you f*cking chief".
