JPA and Writers

With the advent of JPA and the reduction in writers workload will they now be moved from the higher to the lower payband as surely their jobs scores will reduce significantly.

Sorry to any writers out their, point was raised by an oppo and I thought it was worthy of discussion.

King, I've been out for a while now, but somthing you have to realise, writers do not just deal with pay, that is/was only one aspect, admiitedly the most commonly seen one, and in the eyes of jack probably the most important. Bit I only ever had 1 UPO draft (my part 4) in my 7 years as a scribes, and it was probabluy the easiets draft I had.

Mikh, as I said, it's not really my opinion but I did think that if my oppos thought that way it may well be something to discuss. I'm sure if you are familier with any of my previous posts I have the greatest respect for the writer branch.

Especialy of the wren variety! ;^)

I don't bunch of piss heads,

Whats this higher and lower payband anyway, we all got the same when I went out in 95
 
Just a thought....but how can you go from Higher to Lower, from looking at the pay scales (and bear in mind I am not an expert) I cannot see how you could sort it out to go down to lower pay band without taking a pay cut (not allowed).

More to the point possibly, has this happened? to the best of my knowledge, in all the reviews most branches have stayed as they are and some have gone up.

As for the writers moving pay band why should they, with the advent of Gas Turbines and Electric ships did anyone suggest that Stokers be paid less or with the advent of automatic messaging systems did anyone suggest that communicators are paid less ?

An RS(SM) was on the higher pay band whilst a Chief RS(SM) [if thats what they're called] was on the lower. If you stayed at the same rate but was moved onto the lower band then you'd "mark Time Rate of Pay" until things equalled up.

I spent 4 hours sorting out 2 JPA claims today, thus the RN paid me half my daily wage achieving something a writer could of done in probably in a couple of minutes. Tomorrow I will invite a writer over to repair an aircraft and watch him take 4 hours on a task that would take me a couple of minutes. Oh the joy of being a jack of all trades, these IT con-men who take advantage of our Seniors, present a polished one sided view of an all singing and dancing IT system rejected by civvy street that will save £ X millions of pounds through the reduction in UPO staff, they forget about the £ 2X millions lost in reduced efficiency amongst the rest of the fleet.
God help the British Army!
