KANGAR: The Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) is appealing to the Federal government to consider giving a one month bonus to civil servants for Hari Raya Aidilfitri.
Its president Datuk Azih Muda expressed his hope that the government could give due consideration to the request which was aimed at easing the burden of the staff in preparing for Ramadhan and Raya celebrations.
“A one month bonus is apt if we take into account the top notch services given by the civil servants apart from the hike in prices of goods.
“At the same time, we would like to welcome the move made by Penang government in announcing the three quarters of salary bonus for the upcoming Raya celebration slated on July 7.
“For other states which could afford to increase the bonus amount, we encourage them to do so as soon as possible,” he told a press conference after opening the Perlis Cuepacs delegate meeting here today.
