TA pay rise

Discussion in 'Army Pay, Claims & JPA' started by devilish, Apr 1, 2009.

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 find this hard to believe but have just checked it on Armynet.

    According to a the recent pay rise announced the other day, all members of HM Forces will receive a 2.8% pay rise as of today.

    Not the fcukin' TA though! According to armynet, due to the increase in this years(2009) bounty no members of the Territorial Army will benefit from the rise except those currently serving on ops or FTRS. This is scandalous!

    Can anyone shed any light on this or point me to a DIN?

    Pay rates for all Reserve Forces to be increased by 2.8% and an increase of 2.8% in Reserve Bounties.
  3. 2.8% increase in bounty, not in pay!

    Spot the 'and' in the middle?

    What document are you quoting?

  5. 2.8% of sweet FA is hardly worth grumbling over particularly after tax. I dribble a higher percentage of my pint down my front on a night out. Though I agree it would be another finger to the whole 'One Army' issue if it were true.
  6. The one dated today.
  7. No, read DIB 2009/14 and you will see the following:

    • Key recommendations are:
    • All Military pay ranges from Private to Brigadier and equivalents to be increased by 2.8%.
    • All rates of specialist pay and compensatory allowances to be increased by 2.8%.
    • Pay rates for all Reserve Forces to be increased by 2.8% and an increase of 2.8% in Reserve Bounties.

    And which bit are you quoting?

    Try reading the 3rd Key recommendation.

    If you are not able to do this, get someone to read it to you. Very slowly.

    Then have them read para 5, if you are not covered in too much saliva.

  11. This is an April Fool joke... me thinks!!

  12. TZA, you win 5 shiny new pounds!!!!!
