I`m after some advice from any pay 2000 gurus, My pay office is full of civil servants who are a little too grey in this area. Currently I am lvl 6 Sgt on the higher pay scale (yes feels good) but my trade group on promotion to SSgt returns to the lower pay scale. I was informed that If I was promoted I would recieve a 2% increase on my current rate. This would put me at SSgt low band lvl 6. I know I will have to mark time at that lvl until I have served enough time in rank to qualify for the last increment. Now my question is on top of marking time will I no longer qualify for the annual pay award? If not I stand to lose out on around £800-£1000 a year dependant on the pay award. Pay 2000 its for winners. Any advice is much appreciated.
