We expect that final settlement on salary revision; pension for CPF optees and residual issues will be arrived at during second week of April, 2010.5. Comrades, in the given circumstances; when we secured pension for CPF optees, this is one of the best settlements on salary revision for officers. We are successful in ensuring fair increase in basic pay for all scales/grades and two additional stagnation increment to Scale I to Scale III, which is the unique achievement in the 9th bipartite. The concept of stagnation increment for officers was first time introduced during 1987 and there was no improvement thereafter except adding one more stagnation increment to MMGS III during the period.6. Members are requested not to be guided by any type of rumors and adverse comments.
