Stepping on the backs of your brothers and sisters to get yours. Good on you. You’re likely already management but if not you should consider promoting.

This is an absolutely idiotic statement.

RC - did you happen to ever fly the CBP P-3s will a pilot with the initials MO that was also an IP at the schoolhouse?

Come to find out - the Marshal’s (JUSTICE) pilots are already on that pay scale. I was talking to our ACP about it last week after this was brought out and he said our upper mgmt has been aware for at least a year. Of course he said that getting it would be a long road since it is a line item budget and must be written in and then all the way to Congressionally approved; but there is hope.

So let me get this part straight because I don’t know a lot about it...but you guys - if SSR (what does that stand for?) is the same thing I’m talking about which I seems to be, is just a locality/COLA adjustment? The email I was referencing earlier made it seem like a plain old PAY increase for purposes of manning shortages (I did NOT mean to sound like I thought it was a short term bonus like they used in the military), but rather an increase in base GS/Step pay and I wondered if then the locality pay would be on top of that. What has been said here makes me think that is not the case.

Good luck to us all.

It definitely does not need congressional approval. AMO timeline from request submittal to OPM approval was about 3 months. Implemented as of today.

USMC, your raises can be higher than 35% because you have way more room to the cap without LEAP. Look at the bottom of those tables to see all your brethren that are already getting it. Honestly surprised DOT isn’t.

Are those the ones that are already getting it?

I took it that those were the agencies to which this was available.

If it is a list of agencies already receiving then I think that just bolsters our case.

I could care less if you sign for a P3 or a C206, and neither does HQ, because youíre both paid the same now. Enjoy your raise while you have it.

I would imagine I'm a trifle bit happier than you. You must be a real gem to fly with.

I believe those agencies are already all getting it. A quick scan of USAjobs shows much higher than past starting salaries for 1881s in DOD, etc. A friend at JPATS is getting it.

Nailed it...at least in your own mind.

The 10% UAS, is that the location pay for hard to fill spots or referring too? I did read in the NASOC newsletter about the idea of a UAS incentive for qualified pilots.

I believe it to be for all qualified UAS pilots only.

Is the new money subject to the cap?

Is the new money included in the high 3?

The SSR is subject to a different cap than regular GS, which is SES V or GS-15 step 10, whichever is higher ( $ 160,286 for rest of U.S.) The cap under SSR is ES IV, which is $ $166,500 for 2019. It is your new base pay, and counts toward high 3 calculations.

That $166,500 would be the high for our organization for GS14/15 (table 0764 for my locality)
