Cuepacs wants more say in SBPA review
KUALA LUMPUR: Cuepacs wants to have a say in the discussions on the revision to the Public Service New Remuneration Scheme (SBPA) to avoid issues after its implementation.
Cuepacs president Datuk Omar Osman said that previously, the congress was only informed after the scheme had been drawn up, resulting in many civil servants being dissatisfied.
"We (Cuepacs) should have a major role in the committee (to revise the SBPA) so that we can give our views," he told a press conference Friday.
Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak announced that the SBPA would be revised with the objective of resolving issues that had been raised by certain quarters regarding its implementation.
Former Public Services Department director general Tan Sri Ismail Adam has been appointed head of a task force to carry out the review on the scheme.
Omar said the congress would conduct road shows, as requested by the Prime Minister, throughout the country after the Chinese New Year to explain on the postponement of the implementation of the SBPA.
"During the road shows, we will also seek the views of members to be raised in the committee (to revise the SBPA)," he said.
He also hoped that with the revision of the SBPA, expected to be completed within two months, there would be justice for all civil servants especially concerning the increase and new pay scale.
"Civil servants should not worry because the date of implementation of the SBPA is Jan 1, 2012. If it is implemented in June, for example, they will still get the arrears," he said.
He said 600,000 civil servants had already signed the offer letter for the SBPA earlier.
Under the new scheme, the Civil Service hierarchy will consist of four levels, namely, the Premier Group; the Top Management Group; the Management and Professional Group; and the Implementers Group. BERNAMA
