Substantive Rank [MERGED]
« on: September 11, 2006, 12:59:38 »
Hi folks:

I recently saw a PER that gave a rank followed by the word 'substantive'. I suspect this means permanent, but I am not sure.

Only if it follows Corporal or Captain.  ;D ;D ;)

It means the person isn't "acting lacking" or "while so employed".

If you are promoted without being qualified for the rank (eg appointed to MCpl without a leadership course) you are granted an acting rank. Upon completion of the qualification required for the rank, you are then substantive (qualified) in that rank.

I couldn't find a dictionary definition.

Substantive - adj. dealing with real or important matters.
- from the Oxford Dictionary of Current English

In accordance with my old PER writing manual, "the rank used will be the substantive rank held by the member at the end of the reporting period".

If someone actually wrote "substantive" in the PER, I assume it was because the individual had previously been acting or WSE and the drafter wanted to ensure the chnage in status was noted.

Hello,

I am trying to find the technical version of what substantive rank level actually means. Is it fully qualified to hold that rank? Also, are there any circumstances in which you can lose your substantive rank level?

I did come across this QR&O:
3.03 - SUBSTANTIVE RANK
(1) The substantive rank of an officer is the officer's confirmed rank.
(2) The substantive rank of a non-commissioned member is that rank below which the member cannot be reduced otherwise than by:
a sentence of a service tribunal; or
reversion for inefficiency or misconduct. (See articles 11.10 - Reversion and Remustering for Inefficiency and 11.11 - Reversion upon Conviction by a Civil Authority).

The reason I am asking is because I was promoted to substantive MCpl in March/2015, but just recently they realized I did not have Army portion of PLQ. I am just wondering if that substantive can be taken away at all.

Thanks for any insight

Master Corporal is technically an appointment and not a rank- this is why a Sgt will be demoted to Cpl, or a MCpl will be demoted to Pte. It's why 'MCpl' doesn't appear on the pay scales. My understanding is this is a legacy of back in the day when MCpl was initially created; making it an appointment instead of a rank made it easier to make it happen, but has had some odd ramifications.

Potentially they could bump you back down to Cpl. In practice I think it's much more likely they'll get you on a PLQ-Army ASAP.

Thanks. That is what I was thinking, but would really like to find something more concrete. I was under the impression that substantive meant fully qualified,, hence there would be no reason for me to complete that last portion of PLQ. But, I would love to find something regarding losing substantive.

It is likely that you could/will revert to a MCpl (Acting Lacking) until you complete the Army portion of the PLQ.  There is no reason to take away the appointment unless you do not complete the requirement in the prescribed time.  It used to be 5 years from the commencement of any portion of the PLQ qualification courses.

Substantive is someone that fully meets all the prereqs for appointment/promotion.  In your case they made an error on the message and should have appointed you acting. The action taken should be to issue an amendment changing it.  I had the opposite case in that the initial read acting when it should have read substantive and the CM amended it via an email so maybe yours will do the same.

Wait, hold on. Is the requirement for promotion appointment to MCpl PLQ, or PLQ + PLQ Army portion?

The reason I ask is that, we have a "Navy" portion of PLQ as well, but you aren't actually required to do it. We are desperate to get our members on PLQ as quickly as possible, and as a result, we have some of our members conducting AIR FORCE PLQ in Borden, including doing the introductory "Air Force" portion of PLQ, even though it has absolutely no value to our naval members. As far as our system is concerned, once they've achieved the "core" PLQ, they are eligble for appointment to MS, even though they haven't completed PLQ"Navy". And, they are promoted Substantive, not Acting-Lacking.

So, perhaps there was no error? Yes he missed the desired "Army" portion, but as far as the CAF is concerned (not the Army, but the CAF), he's met all the requirements for promotion appointment to MS IAW CFAO 49-4?

So I did my PLQ in 2010 when I was in the navy. I was promoted to MCpl substantive in 2015. Also there is something about substantive in QR&O's:

3.03 - SUBSTANTIVE RANK
(1) The substantive rank of an officer is the officer's confirmed rank.
(2) The substantive rank of a non-commissioned member is that rank below which the member cannot be reduced otherwise than by:
a sentence of a service tribunal; or
reversion for inefficiency or misconduct. (See articles 11.10 - Reversion and Remustering for Inefficiency and 11.11 - Reversion upon Conviction by a Civil Authority).

This may have been a clerical error, but I am not sure if they can just take it away, especially after 2 years, in which time I have received 3 PER's as a MCpl none of which indicate any type of performance issue relating to performing the job at the rank I hold.

I also have some documentation from CDA which may be working in my favour. There are also 3 WO who are privy to the situation, all of which who believe I have a strong case for a grievance.

The introductory *air force* portion of PLQ at the RCAF Academy is actually a qual; PAEQ, Primary Air Environmental Qualification.  Like the Army has BMQ-L and the Navy has NETP etc, we have Basic AEQ (DP1), Primary AEQ (DP2) and as a Sgt there is Intermediate AEQ (formerly known as the Sgts Seminar).

I thought the RCAF Academy PLQ was the new (again) CF PLQ;  same QS and TP across the board with the army bolt-on stuff for those who work in the C Army.

The CAF considers you a substantive MCpl on completion of PLQ Common (You did this in the RCN). The Army will require you to complete AJLC to be able to move on in your career to Sgt. It's all in a CANFORGEN from last year outlining the changes.

PLQ REMAINS AVAILABLE IN A MODULARIZED FORMAT FOR PRES PERS IAW WITH THE TIMELINES IDENTIFIED IN REF A. SINCE AJLC/IJLC ARE NOW SEPARATE FROM PLQ, THERE IS NO TIMELINE IMPOSED FOR THEIR CONDUCT FOLLOWING SUCCESSFUL COMPLETION OF PLQ BUT, AS THE SKILLS ACQUIRED IN PLQ ARE NECESSARY FOR SUCCESS ON AJLC/IJLC, IT IS IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE INDIVIDUAL TO COMPLETE THIS TRG AS SOON AS IS PRACTICAL AFTER PLQ

Based on EITS' post, I think he might be crap out of luck:

Para 3 and 4:

3.   CCA HAS THEREFORE DIRECTED CA STAFFS TO RETAIN THE MATERIAL OF FORMER PLQ A/INF MOD FOUR AND PREPARE TWO NEW AND SEPARATE QS/TPS TO ALLOW DELIVERY OF THIS TRAINING. WHAT WAS FORMERLY PLQ A/INF MOD FOUR WILL HENCEFORTH BE KNOWN AS DP2 ARMY JUNIOR LEADER CRSE (AJLC) AND DP2 INFANTRY JUNIOR LEADER CRSE (IJLC)
 
4.   COMPLETION OF AJLC OR IJLC WILL REMAIN A MANDATORY PREREQUISITE FOR ALL CA PERSONNEL AS DETAILED IN PARAGRAPH 4 OF REF B TO RECEIVE SUBSTANTIVE APPOINTMENT TO MCPL

Based on this, he will be considered PLQ qualified, but that won't matter, because appointment to MCPL for CA pers now requires more than just PLQ.

That's the ones, thanks. By CAD standards you're substantive, but not by Army standards. When you're talking about rank reversion due to non-completion of AJLC, it depends on the reason. There's a recent CANFORGEN covering medical issues, basically removing the CAFs ability to take away your rank if you medically cannot complete the course.

Thank you for all the input. I guess I was hoping for answers with a bit more clarity. I am not disputing the CANFORGENS at all, and I understand the requirements, but based on some of the information and references I have found, and speaking with a handful of Warrants and some CPO outside the unit, I believe I have a solid case to make. The Warrants at my unit (supervisor included) all feel like a grievance is the best option.

I do not want to disclose all my information I have received, as I am not sure who exactly is on here. Thanks again for all the info

The timelines as I understand them:

- trained 2010
- promoted 2015
- CANFORGEN 2016

I should think his substantive would stand. He appears to have been promoted IAW the rules in place at the time, therefore any new rules should not adversely affect him. In order to rescind his promotion, someone would have to go through CMP. This is not an action that can be summarily enforced at the unit level. I would suggest that he has a viable grievance if his rank is taken away.

Timeline reference for discussion,

2009 - Promoted to MS
2010 - Completed CF PLQ
2011 - VOT to army trade
2013 - Completed SQ
2014 - Completed Winter Warfare Basic
2015 - Promoted to MCpl (MPRR says substantive)

Now almost 2 years after promotion, I am possibly having to go back to do the PLQ-A or L MOD4. Are there any references for my specific situation or am I just going to have to do it?

Thanks, good point. Will also bring that to the table. On the other hand there is a CANFORGEN from 2008 I think stating all the trades required to take the PLQ-A. Although at that time I was still not Army

I agree, however the original promotion message from 2015 stated a change of rank to MCpl substantive. That is what I am arguing. There are references and information out there that I have found alluding to the fact that substantive just cant be taken away.

So you have no real reason not to do the course, just simply think you're above doing it? Did you think you were above doing SQ as a Cpl? If you have a medical reason not to complete it, that's a completely different reason than evading the course for personal reasons. If you don't want to complete the requirements, you hand in your appointment. It's pretty simple. Go ahead and grieve it, you'll lose and waste more then the 4 weeks AJLC takes to complete.

I wasn't tracking the timeline info, was hard to pick up on my phone. My apologies.

Thanks for the positive input. Based on the advice from my supervisor, as well as other senior Warrants at the unit, and some info/advice from other senior members in the Forces (one of which is at DMIL/C), I believe I have a legitimate case. They have actually recommended proceeding with this. If they told me that there was no case and that I would lose then I would proceed on the course. I do not need to inform you of all the information I have. I was simply coming here looking for some clarity. You are not fully aware of the full situation or any of the advice I have been given. Thank you though for making assumptions.
Funny you should mention SQ. I had no issue doing it, but many of the instructors were questioning why someone with 13 years in the Forces was there. They were puzzled.

Not much different than instructors questioning why a member had Operational Jump Wings and a medal or two and is now doing BMQ.  Things like that happen and instructors will always be puzzled.  (Yes.  This has happened.)

In general, every trade occupational specification, aka the OcSpec (pronounced awk-speck)  will list exactly what is required to for each rank (combination of QL courses, specific qualifications, etc).

There used to be a big database that was easy to find on the occupational manager website, but they may or may not have moved it.  You can get to their from EMAA and going to 'my career' where you pick your posting prefs etc.

Wait, hold on. Is the requirement for promotion appointment to MCpl PLQ, or PLQ + PLQ Army portion?

Fly poop out of pepper point, but the appointment of MCpl is still treated like a promotion, much the same as a Avr/Pte/AB getting their first "hook".  I am trying to remember where I read it, I believe its in a CFAO.

Timeline reference for discussion,

I think MarioMike captured something key in his quote from the other thread;

Good Morning,

First time poster. I will just lay out the facts:
2009 - Promoted to MS
2010 - Completed CF PLQ
2011 - VOT to army trade
2013 - Completed SQ
2014 - Completed Winter Warfare Basic
2015 - Promoted to MCpl (MPRR says substantive)

Now almost 2 years after promotion, I am possibly having to go back to do the PLQ-A or L MOD4. Are there any references for my specific situation or am I just going to have to do it?

The part in yellow is important, IMO.  We relinquish our rank when we remuster, and our QL (at least I did...went from Army Sgt to AF Cpl QL0 and then, again back to QLO on my final remuster).  So, the question that might need to be answered is, what were the rules for C Army Jnr NCOs to be MCpl Substantive when you were promoted (to the appointment of MCpl  8)) at the time your promotion was Eff?  I left the green machine a decade ago and haven't really followed the whole Army PLQ deal that much, but my memory tells me its changed numerous times.

I've some experience with grievances and you might find time spent on that question is worth it, as I think that is what the question would come down to.  This is the key IMO, to your question of if you are/are not Substantive.  I believe the grievance analyst would also find this very relevant to your situation.  Your CF PLQ would have made you MCpl Substantive when you were still Navy but quite possibly not when you OT to Army and got your Leaf back in 2015.  It is possible the Substantive was in error.

I had thought before MarioMike posted that, that you were a purple trade and was going to say that Environmental training can be taken when moving between Environments regardless of Substantive rank on posting.  Example, if you were say, a Supply Tech Sgt and got posted to a Wing, you would likely find yourself on the IAEQ (Intermediate Air Environmental Qualification course).

Some more info for you to consider here, in Section 7.   http://www.forces.gc.ca/en/about-policies-standards-defence-admin-orders-directives-5000/5031-8.page.  Take a look at the Section 7.3 DP2 stuff and consider it WRT your VOT to Army and promotion to MCpl.

I haven't reviewed all the orders etc in detail, and no doubt double-digit amount of CANFORFENs regarding PLQ and the like in the past few years, but...if you grieved and won, you'd probably still end up taking the applic mods the C Army folks have to do IAW the CANFORGENs under the *required environmental course / trg requirements* stuff, much like the Army DEU Supply Tech Sgt would have to do when he/she was posted to a Wing for the first time.   :2c:

In 2015, all Army managed MOSIDs needed to complete PLQ-A to be substansive. I don't believe the list of trades required to complete PLQ-A has changed in some time, evidenced by the OPs completion of SQ in 2013 (the same CANFORGEN outlined SQ and PLQ-A requirements for the MOSIDs).

Here's my take after reading and considering what, IMO, are key dates and facts:

- VOT to Army in 2011 (relinquishment of rank/pay and change of environments)

This is a portion of my message:

3.  PROMOTED TO SUBSTANTIVE MCPL EFF DATE: 2 MAR 15 SEN DATE: 1 JAN 15 EPZ DATE: 1 JAN 17

- ref B to CANFORGEN 080/16 [the latest and greatest on C Army Jnr NCO requirements) , namely CANFORGEN 092/15 COMD CA 019/15 191700Z MAY 15 .  *Note, mbr was promoted Eff 02 Mar 15.  Therefore, IMO, CANFORGEN 092/15 would not be the reference for the C Army MCpl Substantive requirements.

- WRT to the OP, promoted Eff 02 Mar 2015, the rules for C Army Substantive MCpl should be CANFORGEN 031/13 COMD CA 006/13 211813Z FEB 13 PRIMARY LEADERSHIP QUALIFICATION - ARMY (PLQ-A)

If I were the OP, I'd be looking for a copy of that and seeing what it says before taking another step down the grievance route.  :2c:

EITS, I think you're on the right track with the references. The issue here is that the member was given an incorrect promotion message, stating he was a substansive MCpl despite not having completed the full PLQ-A. The CA controls all training requirements, and I do not believe the changes in who has to complete PLQ-A has changed since the original message outlining CA managed trades. Since the OP has not yet entered the training system for their course, they would be subject to whatever is the newest direction from CCA on PLQ/AJLC.

There is also a CANFORGEN stating that there would be no further grandfathering of the PLQ-A, and anyone missing mods would have to redo from the beginning after a certain date. This is where my caution to the OP would be: best case you end up having to do just AJLC. If you push the issue, and someone connects the dots, you redo the whole thing. I'm not back to work until Monday, I'll get that CANFORGEN WRT grandfathering posted, as I believe its wholly relevant to this scenario. I had to look it up for a subordinate who had a similar circumstance.

Ya, I already had posted that one above.  What the OP needs, IMO, is 031/13 but it looks like it was removed once superseded.  Might have to ask for the original thru the system.

Don't you remember your own posts from 4 years ago?! http://army.ca/forums/index.php/topic,18969.msg1211044.html#msg1211044

Unless the OP is a MET TECH or PRes Army Musician, nothing has changed since 2013 and he was always required to have completed PLQ-L/PLQ-A or the new AJLC. With the new system, his CAF PLQ will cover mods 1-3, and he will only have to attend Mod 4 (which should have been done years ago IMHO).

I highly doubt any grievance would be successful, and would caution again that just because you grieve something, doesn't stop you from losing your rank. You'd only get it back if you win. Are you willing to risk losing that appointment over a 4 week course? I know the pay raise is completely marginal, but that's something that will follow you around in your career.

Now that I've seen the 2013 message, better that the OP gets loaded on the course and "grey man's" his way through it.
