KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 16 2017 : The Congress of Union of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) has proposed that the government considers giving a bonus of one and a half months to civil servants and two new initiatives to ease the financial burden of those living in the city in the Budget 2018 to be tabled on Oct 27.

Its president Datuk Azih Muda said it was vital for the government to consider the proposed City Allowance and Public Transport Discount Card due to the rising costs faced by civil servants living in the city.

“On the bonus, we no longer want the RM500 financial aid, it is time for the government to pay a bonus of one and a half months’ to civil servants.

“As for the provision of public transport rebates, Cuepacs proposes that the discount card be provided to civil servants and government pensioners when using public transportation starting January 2018,” he told reporters in a special media conference here today.

He said in introducing the City Allowance especially to civil servants living in urban areas, Cuepacs proposed a monthly payment of RM300 a month for the group. – Bernama
