Stories from those affected by Promotion Rules Changes

Discussion in 'REME' started by Arr3eH0Le, Jan 8, 2010.

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. I am interested in starting this thread to enable members of the Corps to make known how the changes to promotion rules has affected them.

    I heard a rumour the other day that there is someone in the Corps who was lucky enough to get one of the Formal Career Reviews before they were binned, and was told in that, that he would go to a board in a certain year. The FCR was signed by soldier and RSW, yet now the goalposts have changed he/she is claiming that REME is defaulting on its contract with him/her.

    Anyone elaborate further ?
  2. Not worth the paper it's written on - like the one in my PDR
  3. people are still using a pdr?
  4. Can I just ask - what is the point of an FCR, apart from being an opportunity for the CofC to spell out home truths to deluded fuckwits who carry on with the misguided belief that they deserve promotion?
