IPOH – The Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) hopes the government will review the 252 salary schemes and allowances of civil servants prior to the Labour Day celebration on May 1.
Its president Datuk Azih Muda said Cuepacs was confident it would not involve a big increase in the allocation of government expenditure.
“We are confident of the government’s capacity after the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and request the enforcement date for this scheme to be effective from January 2015 for all,” he told reporters after attending An Evening with the President of Cuepacs Malaysia programme here yesterday.
Azih said the government should conduct a review of salaries deferred over the past 15 years due to the rising cost of living being so high at present.
He also hoped Cuepacs would be given access to meet Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak in the the near future to submit complaints and grievances of civil servants from across the country.
