Cuepacs gets RM100,000 allocation to boost civil servants' productivity

SHAH ALAM: The Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) has received an allocation of RM100,000 from the Human Resources Ministry.

Cuepacs president Datuk Adnan Mat said the one-off allocation was to support the development of the union.

"The allocation is given for the purpose of enhancing the productivity of civil servants. There will also be workshops and seminars to raise awareness and improve the government service delivery system," he said today.

Adnan assures the government and Malaysians that civil servants would repay this generosity through their productivity and would provide the best service to the country.

"We also want to express our gratitude and appreciation to the government for raising civil servants' salaries by more than 13 per cent.

"We have not had a raise for 12 years. With this increase, it is a relief for us," he said during the Cuepacs Workers' Day celebration at the MBSA Convention Centre today.

Human Resources Minister Steven Sim said the raise was a result of Cuepacs' efforts in consistently voicing out the issues and needs of civil servants.

"The civil servants are the frontliners of a country, therefore this salary increase is a recognition from the government.

"Although civil servants are technically not under our ministry, I see a very close cooperation and relationship with Cuepacs," he said.

Yesterday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim announced a more than 13 per cent increase in civil servants' remuneration.

The increase will be effective Dec 1 this year.
