    Pension Indexing for NCMs?

    Enrollment: Swearing an Oath or Affirmation [merged]

    When I joined, I gave my fealty to the Queen, her heirs and successors by swearing to her picture.  I have co-workers who say they swore fealty to the Canadian Flag.  Was this another option?  Does it vary by recruiting center?

    Can the CAF solicit donations?

    Reading over the DAODs and Code of Values & Ethics, it sounds like I can accept gifts/donations of minimal/negligible value as long as there is no conflict of interest.  The business can't have dealings withe the government.  I'll be avoiding unit suppliers like Staples, Lyreco, GrandnToy...

    Members shouldn't get to keep their favorite postings if they can't do their jobs.  Send the deadweight to aciss core dets / stick them in sub-units.  Dets that support a Div or Bde should get the most skilled (spec pay) people.  Sub-units with small signals dets should have aciss-core individuals.

    I work in a desktop tech support shop.  We have people in our shop (ATIS & Core) who simply should not be in a tech shop.  They're 'doing' IST jobs - very poorly; they spend most of their time playing minesweeper or texting on their phone.  I think spec pay should be linked to goals and...
