In the bank this morning that's if HMG is the new name for the BGC?
Figure seems right too. Before we start dripping, JPA affects the whole RN and I know some of the some Permanent Staff who have already had serious cock-ups with pay as a result. Now that is far more unacceptable. Let's get this straight - THEIR MORTAGES DO DEPEND ON IT. Their attitude and motivation has a direct impact on us.
OK we have a right to be paid and especially get expenses back, but put it in perspective.
Also IMO our unit is lucky to have the best bunch of PSIs that I've known and they do work hard. If they don't in other units then through your div system take it up and get the XO do do his job properly.
World wide, my company employs over sixty-five thousand people of various international ethnic origins. Pay days are the first, perhaps the second of the month, that's in the bank ready to spend. If, as in the UK, you have various bank holidays, weekends and etc they actually pay you a few days early.
A sub-contract company who carries out various duties in the field have a payroll of perhaps one hundred (Brits) who perhaps get their wonga on the fifteenth to eighteenth of the month...............the question is............what happens to that money (considerable amount) whilst it is in transit. :twisted:
