    Pay Raise 2021

    Any updates on how this affects folks on retired folks, or those on a VAC voc rehab program? I received the actual lump sum for the time I was serving, but I haven't seen my pension amount or ELB updated yet. Scott

    Brookfield, CDS grievance, DCBA - How do I grieve now that I'm out?

    Welp one more update My adjudication request to DCBA came back - denied, of course. Now they're referencing an email from 2010 that granted TB approval to the policy in question - 2 years before the grievance board found that it wasn't TB approved. Fun stuff. I get the impression DCBA just...

    Brookfield, CDS grievance, DCBA - How do I grieve now that I'm out?

    Latest update on the TDRA shitshow: I received the following from ICCM: " However, I was able to confirm that the CDS did in fact issue a Final Authority Direction that Clarification Bulletin 2010-4 be removed (MGERC site has a typo that says 2012-4, but it is 2010-4 on the original...

    Brookfield, CDS grievance, DCBA - How do I grieve now that I'm out?

    Ballz:  I call BS on it being approved because I can't imagine anyone in their right mind hearing "We've been ordered to remove this from circulation" thinking that means "get bulletin 10-4 approved and keep using it".  If nothing else, clarification bulletin #4 should have been removed from...

    Brookfield, CDS grievance, DCBA - How do I grieve now that I'm out?

    dapaterson: From what I have gleaned from this experience is that the CFIRP is administered by DCBA.  I don't know where DCBA lives on the org chart, but my understanding is that DCBA is responsible for CFIRP, and in order to make changes, DCBA needs to run the proposed changes through the...

    Approximate wait times for pension, release f*ckery, and who to complain to

    Dog It sounds like JPSU with a period of retention is still a confusing mess, and people don't know whether you can be posted there or not. I don't know how true that is...my application was never denied, it just disappeared, over and over again.  Originally submitted 17 Jan 2019, when I...

    Brookfield, CDS grievance, DCBA - How do I grieve now that I'm out?

    You're right, I'm assuming shorter postings.  In my case, when I purchased 2 years ago the appraised value was 360, now the appraised value is 346, just a function of the market as it stands.  House is in substantially better shape than it was at the time of purchase.  Realtor recommended I list...

    Brookfield, CDS grievance, DCBA - How do I grieve now that I'm out?

    Good day gentlemen.  I recently submitted a request for clarification on a BGRS policy that states that in order to qualify for dual residency allowance, your house has to be listed at or below the appraised value. ...

    Approximate wait times for pension, release f*ckery, and who to complain to

    Good evening gentlemen. I released 25 August.  Here's a list of things that have gone wrong: Release issues (so far): -My release wasn't processed correctly.  I received my full end-month pay for August, as well as my mid-month pay for September.  At the end of Sept, I received a pay stub...

    Operation Transition - 30 day admin entitlement upon release

    Here's some cynicism for you:  After being contacted and corrected by the transition centre, my CoC has decided that even though I cannot be employed, I will be required to report to work every day, in uniform, during all regular working hours unless I have identified an appointment to them in...

    VAC Education and Training Benefit (ETB) [Merged]

    Has anyone seen or heard of a mechanism that would allow someone to combine the SISISP LTD education program with this ETB IOT attend a 4-year program?  LTD states that they will only fund a program that can be COMPLETED in 2 years, so I've been told it can't be done, but these programs would...

    Operation Transition - 30 day admin entitlement upon release

    Update: I located a phone number for the Transition Group Client Services folks and gave them a call.  They have confirmed that the policy is in fact 30 days with NO WORK, and will be phoning my CoC to explain it to them. That phone number for anyone else in a similar predicament is...

    Operation Transition - 30 day admin entitlement upon release

    Jarnhammer: Of course, it means they can be employed elsewhere, I totally follow.  My example is simply that if they can't be "employed" in a military setting, then they won't be told to report to and hang out in a military setting.  I'm just trying to strengthen support for my definition of...

    Operation Transition - 30 day admin entitlement upon release

    Moe:  I suspect you were released prior to 30 Apr 2019, which is when this policy came into force.  While I understand that I should be reasonable and conduct a handover, answer questions, and make sure I'm not leaving a disaster for my replacement/the unit, this policy states quite clearly "All...
