I spent a good thirty minutes trying make sense of the DIN (a good effort on my side may i add) and after i read the preious posts i am more confused!!!!! There was a mention of 1.5 months pay for every year served ? which would equate to a full screw level 7... who has served for 18 years.... £3600.00 + 1800.00 = £5400.00 £5400.00 x 18 = £97200.00 Far too good to be true ! but however the goverment would save a fair deal in money for wages over the next four years for people who did "cash in" i suppose. no doubt every AGC wallah will be getting an abundance of bone questions tommorow & thousands of fat pads wives will be relishing the thought of new high heels and ron hills for christmas!
