Morning, From June this year I will be promoted to senior with my seniority date put back to April 2014 to come in line with my peers on my Senior Command Course (SCC). I asked the question about getting the money back as well because clearly when all my peers from the SCC have been paid Seniors since last April I feel a bit "seen off" because of the length of the trade course I'm on. Apparently the Navy don't class me as a Senior till my course is finished so don't honour the back pay only the substantive rank date but why should I be financially punished because of my choice of trade. The Army admin office within the camp I'm on haven't heard of this “rule” and would say I can get the back pay as well a the substantive date. So is the rule a Navel thing and if so is there a DIN I can take to my admin office or is it another thing they hope we don't query so they save money. The course is non rate specific as its a training line number so promotion to senior for the course would have been better but that's another argument. Any help with this is appreciated.
