Just wondering what the consensus is? For my part - "something that is free has no value..." so the pay is important. I get fed up hearing the PSIs trottng out some sort of party line that says "not to rely on the money" but then the management can't understand why the troops feel like saying..."then don't rely on us turning up?!" Even if the pay side is largely irrelevant to most typical RNRs, a quarter of a day's pay worth nothing compared to civvie jobs, it has been earnt so should be forthcoming with no arguments and endless cockups and excuses. If nothing else people rack up so much in expenses that they often don't see for months. The RN and COMMARES should take note this is part of the retention and recruitment issue or are we expected to see the RNR like being a Special Constable?
