The Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) today called on the government to consider revising the salaries of civil servants throughout the country, as the last increase was during the 2012-2013 period.

The salary revision as well as an increase in allowances, particularly Federal Territory allowances and Federal Territory housing allowances would be the focus of Cuepacs discussions with the government which Zainal hoped would take place soon.

Another request to be made was that time-based promotions be awarded which would entail promotions after 10 years of service, as opposed to 13 to 15 years.


KUCHING: The Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) today called on the government to consider revising the salaries of civil servants throughout the country, as the last increase was during the 2012-2013 period.

Congress deputy president Zainal Ismail said the salary revision was supposed to be conducted every three years.

He said the government should give due attention to the matter, particularly increase for staff in the Public Service Department (JPA) and enforcement agencies which represent the front line of the civil service.

Another request to be made was that time-based promotions be awarded which would entail promotions after 10 years of service, as opposed to 13 to 15 years.

This would enable civil servants to retire on higher grades.

Cuepacs would also request that the revisions are covered in the 2020 budget and that the government gives priority to maintaining and replacing facilities and assets throughout the country, particularly quarters and vehicles which were in disrepair.

Zainal was speaking after attending the launch of the newly-named Kesatuan Pegawai Awam Polis Sarawak (KPAPS) by Sarawak Police Commissioner Datuk Azman Yusof at Pustaka Negeri here.
