Except that those issues are not exclusive to the Materiel Management Tech trade, this is across the CAF. From a base salary perspective, I think many trades within the CAF are overpaid while some are underpaid. Our pay structure is apparently designed to compete with people doing a lot of overtime when, in fact, most CAF members don't. I'd be curious to see how many MMTs stay past 6PM on a regular basis. I bet you it is not a majority.
Having OT in the CAF would most likely improve QoL significantly.
Would you agree with a lower base salary but with overtime compensation?
Wait wait wait, so now if a CAF member isn't working overtime they aren't valuable enough for the current salary levels ? What's wrong with someone getting their tasks done in the 8hr work day ?
You are showing the exact reasons our pay is tied to rank and not hours. Its a dogs breakfast if you try to go otherwise. Lets also remember we are paid 24/7/365. Hence the reason I can call in the CFB Halifax, Blog Traffic section on a Sat at noon to move parts. How would you do over time for ships ? I was 141 days onboard FRE in 2020 with no time off. Imagine that OT bill.
Id rather "time in lieu" as the overtime the CAF would owe me would be taxed out the wazoo.
