Pay for part 1b training

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by Rockhopperst4, Jan 26, 2008.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. We have to report by 23.00 on the friday night so are we paid from then? Our admin lady has eventually sent us some time sheets but she has filled in the dates as only saturday to sunday. If we are not paid from friday then what time should i put for saturday morning?

    I've tried asking them about this but i've not had any reply as yet.
  2. Don't you get dropped off by your unit?

    If you turn up at TAC at 2100, you put 2100 down as start time. The day "ends" at 23:59, and the next one starts at 00:01

  3. I just put 0600 - 2000 on both days for mine as that covers the 8 hours attendance/4 hours training for the full days pay anyway.

    Possibly entitled to a quarter day for the friday to cover travel/admin but I personally couldn't be bothered with the additional hassle.
  4. Bravo_Bravo has it right, you are obliged to enter start and finish times as they occur. 0001 to 2359 etc. If you start friday at 2300 and finish sunday at 1700 the timings are 2300 to 2359. 0001 to 2359. 0001 to 1700. Also if you arrive as requested at the TAC to meet transport at 2100, then again B_B has it right starts at 2100 to 2359. Oh and thats a 1/4 days pay too.
  5. Note that starting duty at 20:00 makes it a half-days pay.

    Which, I suspect under PAYD means you'll get billed for scoff and so should get fed... and three meals on sunday...

    look UP...

    Not on CMSR 1B he won't (the scoff charge bit). Still a recruit and thus a free feeder.
  7. I stand erected.
  8. PAYD = Pay As You Dine - the clue is there, basically you pay for what you eat if at a PAYD Unit and liable for the charge.
  9. What about 14 hours work, leave unit at 1400?
  10. Yes we are free feeders. I'm also in a National unit (is that what they are called now? Used to be specialist TA) so i make my own way to Grantham but our joining instructions say we have to be there by 23.00 on the Friday.

    Looks like i'm going to have to get the admin people to change the dates on the sheets then.

    Thanks everyone.

    I'm at Grantham too and get paid for a half-day on the Friday (five hours travel) if we're due on that night.
  12. You get paid from the moment you leave your home to go to your place of duty. That includes the Friday night.

    Claim it - you're due the pay & it counts towards your bounty, etc.
  13. I was told we get paid for 2.5 days for the Phase 1 weekends, and by the way they do charge PAYD during phase 1.

    Maybe for locally recruited units (I don’t know) but certainly not for Specialists during their recruit phase. As pointed out above, they are classed as free feeders all the way through.

    Edit: That is they get the core meals free. If they want to eat outside this / additional items then yes, there will be a charge.
  15. As has been explained before depends if the RTC is a DTE, Redford isnt so we/you have to pay, thats the way it goes.
