Are there any other Journeyman H banders getting paid less than the new incoming G bands thanks to the tech ops VP, Or is it just me?

I am not an employee and don't know how the pay system works. So, I can't add any info.

I am curious how pay is determined in the ATSS ranks.

In my most current position (mechanic), the perspective employees' experience and training was evaluated (with firm guidelines). From there, raises were basically automatic (given no performance issues) until the mechanic was 'topped out'. This is assuming the employee remained in the mechanic ranks (not promoted or transferred to a 'merit' position).

Like I said, I am curious how the ATSS pay system works.

Thanks,

ATSSs are under what is called core compensation. Core Comp is based on overlapping pay bands. Performance band for us is H band. New hires come in at F or G based on quals and experience as determined arbitrarily by Human Resources and management.

Promotion up to H is automatic but requirements and processes vary by location. There are no programmed raises except for an annual 1.6% longevity raise every summer.

There are provisions for supervision to submit employees for in band increases based on performance but application of that provision is inconsistent across the country. It’s currently stated by contract that 5% of the force will get an in band raise every year but not sure if they are meeting that.

Other than occasional annual raises granted by congress that’s it. Next chance for a raise is to bid on a I band position. There are various I bands available as SSC Coordinator, Inspector, Ops Center controller etc...
