KUALA LUMPUR — Sept. 29, 2017: The Congress of Union of Employees in the Public And Civil Services (Cuepacs) would like the government to consider giving double salary increment to all civil servants, saying that this would help alleviate the financial burden of civil servants in facing the rising cost of living.
It also wants the government to conduct a review on the public service allowances for the lowest group which is now at RM95 a month. The last time the rate was reviewed was in 2002.
“It is high time for the government to set the minimum rate for the allowance at RM180. This is among our suggestions,” Cuepacs president Datuk Azih Muda said here tonight.
He said it was hoped that the suggestions be given specific consideration in view of the 15th Public Service Perdana assembly scheduled for October 3.
Cuepacs had also asked the government to consider expanding the time-based promotion to other groups.
“The first time the time-based promotion was given was to the implementer group officers and then to teachers. Now we are asking for it to be given to other groups, hopefully by January 1,” said Azih.
