It seems they haven't got a clue how what is happening is going to happen, so are keeping 'mum'. Out of curiosity I've looked at the Q&A page on SP and it says much without saying or committing to anything other than things are changing. It seems there side issues being raised like 'badges' eg 'mudguards' and TRFs which are good for RC(N) and HQAC as it can deflect attention away from the lack of clarity on the main issue.
If they get this 'transfer' wrong in wording and or process that's when you could see chaos ensue. It strikes me as situation normal with any change we've had thrust upon us; here's the change, this is when it's happening, here's a vague document now get on with it and we'll get round to the detail a bit later (no fixed time) once everyone is completely confused, brassed off and so on and have given up trying to understand it. Because all the documentation is now electronic they can be pretty certain the majority won't or aren't able to read it properly. If this had happened pre-electronic docs, they'd have needed to get their act together more than they appear to have, but now they are afforded the luxury of ad hoc changes as and when and no requirement to inform people as they think people will just look at everything. However as this concerns ACF and SCC Officers as well, if the MOD get it it wrong, the fall out could be much worse than just a few ATC Officers getting irritated.
Our OC is currently on the fence about what to do, but have become quite annoyed due to the lack of communication and now it's only 6 weeks to the change date. They've been expecting a personal letter, not just openly available electronic documents. They've intimated if they get a contract / TCOS to sign stating their role / responsibilities as an Officer without large concessions to the fact they volunteer in their spare time in a youth organisation and have only the loosest military connection as per SNCOs and cadets, then they'll probably take the opportunity to resign and remuster as CIs, as they aren't employees and a contract or something similar is not binding, but will be considered as binding. It is quite unsettling when the OC is distracted in this way and there is the chance they could say no thanks. What about squadrons where this happens, has the effect of even a moderate exodus of Officers been considered?
