I have a question about compensation for reservists. A normal MUP claim is only based on your number of working days with your company. So if I am going to reservist from 14/1/11 to 28/1/11 and my company is on a 5 day workweek, my MUP claim to SAF would be:
that would work out fine if our ICT training schedule was based on a 5 day work week. However, our schedule is a 6day workweek, with only Sundays off. Shouldn't SAF also compensate us for service pay on Sat?
I quote this paragraph from NS.SG
National Service is a duty to the Nation. NSmen are given service pay for each day of NS Training, including Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. While this cannot fully compensate our NSmen for their commitment and contribution towards NS, service pay serves to recognise each day of contribution made by NSmen."
My ICT is coming up and the training schedule is 6 day workweek, and I've been wondering about this Sat compensation. I went back to check last year's MUP and realised that there was no service pay made to me. Do I have a case? I'm from 2PDF btw. How about you guys? How are your high key ICT training schedule like? Are your Saturdays burnt too without being compensated?
note: given my rank, the service pay for 2 saturdays is actually quite insignificant, but this is a question about integrity Bottomline is SAF cannot and should not shortchange us.
