He said on Wednesday that more than 1.4 million civil servants nationwide are prepared to work overtime - an extra 30 minutes without pay - if 70 per cent of its six claims are approved by the government in the 2013 Budget.
What is he up to by making such a 'stupid' counter-offer to the government? Its just like putting up conditions to wed the woman of your mom's choice! I find it absurd, totally absurd!
What's the different of coming to work 15 minutes earlier and leaving 15 minutes later. I believe most of them are alerady into such a practice, especially those working in the cities like Kuala Lumpur and Putrajaya. Why? They just want to avoid the massive traffic jam!
And they are already used to going home a bit later to avoid similar problems. Or Omar is the only civil servant clocking in sharp at 8am and leaves at 4.30pm? Only robots do that!
More than 1.4 million civil servants nationwide are prepared to work overtime if 70 per cent of its six claims proposed by Cuepacs are approved by the government in the 2013 Budget.Another thing for Omar to use his brain to the fullest. Does he know that some civil servants 'curi tulang' at work - coming to office at 8, breakfast from 9am-10am, lunch 12pm-2pm, tea break at 3pm-3.30pm?
Cuepacs president Datuk Omar Osman said government employees would work 30 minutes more without payment if their proposals including improving the Malaysia System of Remuneration (SSM) were accepted by the government.
"Cuepacs will ensure that civil servants will make a drastic change to their work culture, if possible, coming in 15 minutes earlier and going home 15 minutes later, which is a commitment of the civil servants to reciprocate the government's approval of their claims."
He said public servants were fervently awaiting the improved SSM after it was announced on March 8 that the SSM would be improved to replace the New Public Service Remuneration (SBPA) scheme which had been revoked.
Apart from improved SSM, Cuepacs is also making claims on maximum pay which is not in line with the annual pay increment.
Cuepacs also wants the government to undertake housing projects for units costing below RM135,000 in urban areas, raise fixed housing allowance, improve the status of 45,000 civil servants on contract, provide two months' bonus and review the abolished joint departmental council (MBJ) at the central level.
How much time is wasted there? And the government and the taxpayers can tolerate and compromise such an attitude.
Sorry la, bro. I think Cuepacs needs a new president! Good that you are not a politician!
