I am a fingerprint technician with the RCMP in Canada. We are currently facing ugly negotiations on pay issues. Caught in the middle of two employment categories, we are neither public servants nor "regular members" of the RCMP (ie. cops). Consequently, we have neither a union nor the rcmp representatives looking out for our interests and have gone years without pay increases, while other employees continue to get cost of living increases (including a 9% pay raise recently achieved by regular rcmp members, and huge "pay equity" settlements by the public service).
So, my question for you fellow fingerprint professionals is: What is the pay scale for your forensic technicians (AFIS fingerprint tech's)?
We'd like to be able to go to meetings with some information to compare our salaries to others in our field.
I thank you for sharing your information with me.
