X Factor

#1
If the tA is to be more deployable and better organised, and likely to train with Regular units,

Why don't I get the fuc*in X factor?

i dont do it for the pay but it pis*es me off that we have to do a full 8 hours when my day is used up wether i do 6 or 14 hours and still get only a days pay. Our SSM must think its his money.

Mr Tracey,

You should get a qtr day for Friday night, otherwise you have no reason to be working, and are technically not insured or subject to military law if you are not on the books.

However, you are only entitled to reduced x factor (5%) which is part of your standard pay. You do not get full x factor because you are not subject to all of the issues which build up x factor (complex, but includes service housing, liability for deployment (note, compulsory not mobilisation which can be appealed against) repeated separation etc).

Some units apply the 24 hours rule a little too vigorously. Applied too techincally, you can interpret 8pm Friday to 8pm Sunday as 48 hours, and pay accordingly.

I've known some units pay a Quarter day for a Friday night start, although mine pay a Half day.

Ok but I think everyone should be treated the same and get what is due to them if they do the time every weekend and I did not realise that it was 24 hours to get a days pay as I thought it was 8 hours. whats the tea thing that i don't get anymore?. Where can I check pay levels and what I can claim?

(Checked for spelling after my cock slip up)

Hello I am a barrack room lawyer , perhaps I can help ?
its just frustrating that i cant find a single answer about how many hours you need to do for days pay and no-one seems to understand claims for the TA

You need to do 8 hours training to qualify for a days pay, within a 24 hour period.

General rule of thumb is that if you start at 8pm on Friday, and knock off at 8am on Saturday, you're only entitled to a days pay, as you've done less than 24 hours.

Keep going until Sunday, and you should then get two days pay.

Units should all standardise in my opinion, but if you're keeping an eye on your MTD budget, then it's cheaper to pay a quarters day pay for a Friday night start.

see i think that is where things aregetting confused as when i am attending a training weeked up at redford barracks my self and all other recruits there from many diff units
get 1 qtr days pay pus tea pay for the friday night

and 2 full days pay for the sat and the sunday
reason for this is because on the sunday we are not getting home till 3 0 clock so as revalle is at 6 we are working longer than 8 hours plus on the sat we are working till 8 at night

so the standard or all the units up north as far as i can see are 2 and 1 qrt days pay for one weekend
