Don’t forget us, says Cuepacs Sarawak

Date:

KUCHING: It is hoped that Budget 2022 which will be tabled this Friday (Oct 29) will not disappoint civil servants.

In saying this, Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) Sarawak chairman Omar Bahrein Unin said Cuepacs had submitted several requests to be considered by the government before this.

“The demands made by Cuepacs are reasonable to be implemented by the government as most of them have been announced by the government before this but have not been realised due to the change in government.

“Civil servants really hope that the matters which have been announced by this government will be implemented quickly as some of them have been delayed since 2018,” he said in a statement on Tuesday (Oct 26).

He said, “If implemented, Cuepacs believes they will help all civil servants in matters related to dealing with the current high cost of living.

“It is also an incentive to civil servants to continue improving their service quality and productivity,” he said.

Omar added civil servants could also help the government in socioeconomic aspects when their purchasing power increased, adding that this would greatly benefit businesses.

“Cuepacs Sarawak urges the government not to leave out civil servants in Sarawak – the additional allowance of RM50 a month for cost of living that has been enjoyed by civil servants in the Peninsula since January last year should also be given to civil servants in Sarawak and Sabah.

“We also call for the regional incentive payments for civil servants to be improved according to the current situation,” he said.
