I have recently picked up my 3rd tape having been a full screw for over 10 years. As I was a full screw for so long, I was on level 7 pay band and earning more than junior level Sgt's. Now that I have been promoted how will this affect my pay? I have heard that you cant take a pay drop when you get promoted however is it right that I will be earning more than Sgt's who have held the rank for a few years? I have asked my CofC and nobody can give the official answer.
