I am not sure what the ACO hopes to achieve by pressuring staff to move. I know that you need an even spread of staff to benefit everyone, but I am aware that many staff flatty refuse to go into Uniform to avoid exactly this scenario.
If you are forced to move against your will, you begin to question your commitment because it impacts on the rest of your life. I have seen a good OC hung out to dry because he was having marital problems, was the ACO sympathetic? There is always a at which you begin to question commitment.
So you might get paid some money, but does this buy back any loss of personal time?
The ACO is entirely voluntary, although there are those who see it as a vocation, and pretend they are real life RAF people. Some even give up paid employment to devote their time and whilst they are parading in the Officer's Mess, you end up with all the menials. In the real world where Employment Law exists, the ACO would have been laughed out of court, time and time again.
Regrettably similar tactics are deployed against Cadets; we all like to believe that we are in charge of our own destiny, but the ACO has a rather different idea. It aint what it used to be.
