You're right I contacted my OR and right now they are compiling names of people affected by this. Rumors are they want this completed by March next year.

Any one who OT'd into a spec trade after 2004 should probably speak to their orderly room. IAW the CBI, all time served plus the time spent in the jnr. Sub OCC was supposed to be counter to calculation of IPC I  the specialist pay category. They have been only using the time in the jnr sub OCC to calculate it. A number of grievances have resulted in D Mil Pay going back to correct the error. We received an email about it on Monday. There are like 1400 pers across the forces affected, so if you may be one of them make sure you are on the list.

Edit: I will try to post the message when I get into work tonight.

What, exactly, is the requirement for a trade to receive spec pay? I legitimately do not know.

You neeed to have a technical job, requiring a significant amount of training, with skills easily transferable to the civi world . . . it is a sort of "please don‘t leave the CF" pay.

It's all laid out here by MOSID.

Pay Overview -->  http://www.forces.gc.ca/en/caf-community-pay/pay-overview.page

Team Concept

As is the case in most militaries, the CAF uses a rank-based team concept or institutional approach to determine pay. In this methodology, the average value of the work performed by all members of a specific rank level is considered in developing pay. This is quite different from the more common Public Service method in which an individual is paid the evaluated worth for the specific position they are filling. In exceptional cases, market factors force the CAF to consider a handful of military occupations, such as doctors, dentists, lawyers and some high-tech trades, separate from the majority of CAF members. However, within these special occupations, the team concept is applied.

Pay Groups

Non-Commissioned Members

Non-commissioned members are paid rates of pay determined through TC analysis. Within each rank there are a number of Pay Increments (PI) which represent automatic annual increases given in recognition of advancements in experience, skill and knowledge. As well, there are three sub-groups of pay into which non-commissioned member trade groups are slotted. These sub-groups are Standard, Specialist 1 and Specialist 2 and pay rates vary in each sub-group. The Specialist 1 and Specialist 2 sub-groups, which include trades such as Fire Control Systems Technicians, Flight Engineers, Biomedical Electronics Technicians, and Marine Engineering Artificers, comprise jobs which are highly complex in nature and whose skills are in high demand in the private sector.

So, correct me if I'm wrong here, but if someone completes the trade course that grants them Spec pay, would the move from (for example) Corporal 3 pay incentive to Corporal 3 (Specialist pay) ? or would it reset?

cheers

The way it works is that upon qualifying for Spec pay (QL5 Cpl for most trades), you are entitled to spec pay at the rate of any pervious time spent at the rank of Cpl or a above + any time spent in the new trade prior to qualifying for spec pay. For Example:

Cpl Bloggins is a Cpl IPC 2 infantryman. Cpl Bloggins transfers to AVN tech 1 Jan 15. He received his QL 5 AVN tech 13 Jan 17. He has 3 years as a CPL in the infantry. He has 2 years as a AVN-jnr (ie apprentice). 3 +2 equals 5 years at as a Cpl. He will now be paid as a Cpl IPC 4 Spec 1.

 :goodpost:

The way it was explained to me is your spec pay is calculated based on time in MOSID. This was frustrating for me because I am Cpl 4(previous time in another trade) about to get spec pay upon completion of QL5, and I would have been bumped to Cpl 2 spec 1.

I am delighted to see this is not the case, and I will bump over to Cpl 4 Spec 1.

Thanks for the clarifying information.
