MIRI, August 15: Congress of Union of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) will submit a proposal on a new remuneration system for civil servants to the government end of this year, said its president Datuk Azih Muda.
“As we are heading towards the year 2020, it is about time that the old system which has been used since 2002 should be revised to make it more relevant. We are currently gathering input for the proposal before we submit it to the present government,” said Azih at a press conference held on Wednesday after attending a briefing session on pre-retirement for more than 300 civil servants in Miri.
The briefing session was jointly organised by the Retirement Fund Inc (KWAP) and Cuepacs.
Also present was Cuepacs secretary-general, Adnan Mat.
Azih further added that the proposal would provide a clear path for career development for civil servants, including salary based on academic qualification and on improving retirees’ welfare.
On another note Azih said Cuepacs is urging the current federal government to reconsider the proposal by the previous government to close down nine (9) Teacher Training Institute (IPG) campuses in the country.
“The function of the institution (IPG) is still relevant…we will bring the matter to our Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to solve the issues,” he stressed.
Meanwhile on the abolishment of the National Service programme (PLKN) and National Civics Bureau (BTN), Azih thanked the present government for not terminating civil servants attached to these two agencies but for immediately absorbing them into the Ministry of Youth and Sports. — DayakDaily
