Three months has elapsed since we last reviewed Guide pay. As a result, the contract between the Guides and the standing parties which guarantees they are paid for their work has elapsed. We need to review the terms of Guide pay here in order to give our Guides some certainty that they will receive payment for their work. The period under review is from 2019/03/07.

Some of you may be wondering why we need to review Guide pay; didn't we just pay them at the recent grant round? The grant rounds pay Guides for work already completed - in that case, from 2018/12/07 for 3 months. These votes are to give the Guides assurances that the payment will be forthcoming at the next grant round, and to review the details of what that payment will be.

So far, the terms of Guide pay have remained unchanged since first organised by @Matt Osborne way back at the beginning of M3. Those terms are:

- 600 FCT per month

- 3 month period

The purpose of this discussion is to define the terms we wish to vote on so that i can craft a poll that represents the full spectrum of the standing party's views.
