Tan Sri-Tan Sri Sidek Hassan, Abu Bakar Abdullah dan Wan Abdul Aziz menipu Perdana Menteri dan membazir duit/'manhours' kerajaan?

 Penulis SBPA adalah Ketua Setiausaha Negara Tan Sri Sodek Hassan, Ketua Pengarah Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam Tan Sri Abu Bakar Bin Abdullah dan Ketua Setiausaha Kementerian Kewangan Tan Sri Wan Abdul Aziz Bin Wan Abdullah.  Berapa jutakah wang kerajaan telah digunakan untuk merangka SBPA?  Berapa ribu 'manhours' kakitangan kerajaan telah digunakan untuk merangka SBPA?  Kenapa mereka bertiga ini tidak menunjukkan gambar yang sebenar kepada kabinet bahawa SBPA mereka bukan sahaja di tolak oleh CEUPACS tetapi juga tidak 'popular' dengan rakyat?  Sekarang Yang Amat Berhormat Datuk Seri Najib dan pemimpin-pemimpin BN diserang oleh pembangkang kerana ketidakjujuran dan kesalahan mereka.
New pay scheme: Done in haste, purely a waste
YOURSAY 'If this cancelled scheme is any indication, I shudder about the other decisions affecting the country as a whole.'
PM: New civil service pay scheme scrapped

your sayKsn: What PM Najib Razak did is right, provided that politics was not part of the decision. What I am more concerned about here is the decision-making process of the government.

If this cancelled scheme is any indication, I shudder about the other decisions affecting the country as a whole.

How come the scheme was adopted in the first place? Wasn't the cabinet briefed? Who is the minister in charge of the civil services? How come the chief secretary, the Public Services Department (PSD) boss, didn't brief the PM and the cabinet?

Did not the PM and the entire cabinet notice the almost criminal, shameful disparities between the lower rungs and the heads of departments? Why was the civil service union Cuepacs not consulted in the first place?

A number of resignations, if not dismissals, of those responsible for the cancelled scheme is called for. I hope Najib is working on it.

Sarawakian_3ff9: The private sector will never have a scheme that increases senior staff pay in percentage points more than the lower rung.

Because of the existing large gap between senior and junior government staff, it should be the junior who gets to have bigger pay increase in percentage points than the senior staff.

In this case, the lowest should get the 13 percent and top rung the 7 percent. That's how the income gap can be resolved, not setting up minimum pay arbitrarily.

As usual, the government messed up on this one. No wonder the union was up in arms.

Onyourtoes: Basically, you have nincompoop ministers and nincompoop government servants, all not deserving of getting anything. I guess no ministers or top civil servants responsible have read the documents and studied the scheme being proposed.

You see, with this new announcement, off hand, I could see another anomaly being created. You have grade 54 getting a 13 percent increment compared with those in superscale grade C, which was given only a 9 percent increase.

But do they know that at the moment the salary of grade 54 is almost the same as those in superscale grade C. So with higher increment for grade 54, the salary of those in grade 54 may end up higher than those in superscale C.

Clever voter: Increasing salary without addressing the issue of productivity is a recipe for disaster. There are implications on benefits, too.

Trying to raise top civil servants' pay is right in principle, but we need to consider the person's job match.

Not everyone deserves the hike, just look at the number of blunders that have taken place in ministries, from education to foreign affairs. It's really a joke.

Pemerhati: We already have a bloated civil service of 1.4 million. Compared to comparatively well-run countries like Korea and Taiwan, Malaysia's civil service to population ratio is more than twice as large.

The astronomical monthly salaries of RM80,000 or so that were quietly approved for the premier grades under the SBPA (new civil servant remuneration scheme) outraged the very large majority of the civil servants, who by comparison were only given very slight increases.

Then Cuepacs on their behalf too asked for large increases. If they were to be approved the country would have been in serious financial trouble. So Najib has opted to giving slight increases to everyone.

The smart way to increase the salaries of the civil servants would be to reduce their numbers and then increase their salaries in proportion to the numbers reduced so that the total wage bill remains about the same.

Thus if the size of the civil service is reduced by half, then their salaries could be doubled without causing financial problems to the country.
Pants on Fire: Is the PM scrapping the new pay scheme because the chief secretary (KSN) got a hike of about RM8,000 or more?

Also included were the Jusa (super salary scale) officials who got a big hike of thousands of ringgit. Malaysia Boleh, bro.

Gopallan: Well done, Mr PM. It is good you were able to see through the deceit by those who were originally in charge of the pay review.

Now that you have rectified the anomalies, would it not be prudent to identify the perpetrators who were responsible in nearly getting away with their nefarious schemes in giving themselves a huge pay rise and bringing them to book?

Let these people not get away. They will be up to no good the next time. The least the government can do is to censure everyone of them.
SBPA: Cuepacs urges review on senior civil servants
The Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) hopes that the government will give attention to senior civil servants in the implementation of Grade 17 under the New Public Service Remuneration Scheme (SBPA).

Cuepacs deputy president Azih Muda said they proposed for those affected to be promoted a grade higher as recognition for the group.

He said the matter should be studied to consider the duration of their service and recognise any skills and technical certificates for promotion to Grade 21.

“What we see now is only one promotion for those who have served the government up to 30 or 35 years, which is the same as a promotion for a new civil servant or those who have served four or five years.

“Under the SBPA now, civil servants with a certificate are given a promotion to Grade T8. However, the seniors don't have this chance as they haven’t been recognised... but they have the same certificate,” he told reporters at a briefing session with the Terengganu Fisheries Department Employees Union in Kuala Terengganu yesterday.

In relation to that, Azih said Cuepacs also wanted the implementation group to be promoted as they are currently small in number.

“We also want to emphasise that the seven to 13 percent salary increment mentioned by Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak during the tabling of the 2012 Budget was not implemented.

“Most of the civil servants only received up to four percent in salary increment, not even seven as stated,” he said.

Besides that, he said Cuepacs was committed in fighting for five demands in the SBPA, adding that he hoped it could be settled amicably.

In the five demands, Cuepacs sought a review of the salary adjustment for those in Grade 54 and below; to retain the seniority of civil servants in the SSM; review of the maximum salary scale; listing civil servants who were eligible for a seven to 13 percent salary increment and reviewing the salary increment restructuring for all grades.
