Cuepacs: No complaints of termination of services for contract staff in civil service

Azih Muda

PETALING JAYA: The Congress of Union of Employees in the Public and Civil Services Malaysia (Cuepacs) has not received any complaints about the termination of services for contract staff in the civil service, says its president Datuk Azih Muda (pic).

"We have not received any complaints so far, either in verbal or written form," he told reporters at a press conference in Wisma Cuepacs on here Tuesday.

"The people and the civil servants would need to trust Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad to make the best (choice) for the country," he said, urging Malaysians to wait for the Cabinet to be formed first.

He said he hopes the new government would also look into cost of living for civil servants, especially those who are of a lower income.

When asked about the incentives for civil servants that former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had earlier proposed before GE14, Azih said "there is no need to worry, give your trust (to the new government)".

Azih said Cuepacs would continue to "stand strong" (berdiri tegak) with the government of the day and to serve the people.

However, according to a source at a Ministry, contracts for those serving in the deputy and minister's office were terminated.

The source claimed that most of the terminations were dated on May 10, a day after the 14th General Election.
