Now work harder….!
SINGAPORE: About 2,200 lower wage civil servants will receive a salary increase of between S$60 to S$80 in April, Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean announced in Parliament on Tuesday (Mar 10).
This follows the total salary adjustments of about S$300 to S$330 they received from 2012 to 2014 – an increase of about 25 per cent in their monthly salaries, over and above their annual increments.
“This move will keep salaries market competitive as part of our regular review of salaries. From next month, their salary scales will also be lengthened so that officers who have reached the previous maximum of their scales can receive further increments as they uplift their skills,” said Mr Teo, speaking at the Committee of Supply 2015 debate in Parliament.
“The Public Service will continue to work closely with the unions, and make salary adjustments where necessary, while providing our lower-wage officers with relevant opportunities to upgrade their skills.”
