Narendrath Gopee, president of the Federation of Civil Service Unions and Other set the tone of this dissatisfaction officials affecting average wages after the report's release, Tuesday, October 9. "C `is a total disappointment for the public. I did a calculation, the actual increase granted by the PRB is not 22%, but of 15% . "
The first effect of the PRB in 2013, is the disparity that `it will generate between large and low wages. The difference in wages between a driver and an officer will amount in January, when the report will be
applied at Rs 134,000. This gap was Rs 101,400 in the previous report of PRB in 2008.
Clerical salaries of officers and Higher Clerical Officers, which are Rs 9600, will increase to Rs 11,250, an increase of 17%. In comparison, the Senior Chief Executives salary will go from Rs 110,000 to Rs 144,000 in January. Permanent Secretaries are also a significant increase of the commandment of 30% from Rs 87,500 to Rs 114,000.
In addition it `s benefits, highlights the union Toolsyraj Benydin. "If we accumulate allowances and other benefits, we can say that the officials had an increase of 100% in some cases, while minor officials must wait 22 years for a trip," he laments.
Sutyadeo Moutia, Minister of Public Service: " The measures will be implemented quickly "" We will establish an Implementation Monitoring Commitee for the measures to be implemented quickly. Salary increases, which are up to 22% for civil servants will cost Rs 4.6 billion to the government, showed Sutyadeo Mootia. This report aims to encourage employees of the public to be more effective and we hope that these measures will allow us to retain talent . "
Narendranath Goopee, president of the Federation of Civil Service and Other Unions: " A total disappointment for the Public " "I made ??a calculation shows that the actual increase granted by the PRB is not 22%, but rather than 15%. When removing the 6% contributory pension, you end up with 9% increase. You should also know if the PRB into account the balance of wages with the new conditions of employment, and if the new wages to offset the loss of purchasing power. It took five years to produce a report that could be made ??by a layman. This report is a complete disappointment for the Public "
Imrith Rashid, president of the Confederation of Workers in the public sector: " Not satisfied with the salary revision of 10%"" PRB had two tasks to perform. The first, to readjust wages following an increase in the cost of living. And, second, to propose a revision of wages. Such a revision does not exceed 10% at first sight. We are not satisfied .. "
Renganaden Padayachy, economic analyst Chamber of Commerce: " This can affect competitiveness "" Our position: one must wage policy in the private and public sectors. Otherwise there is a risk of distorting the labor market. 22% average is higher than the cumulative growth rate since 2009, which must be around 15%. The issue of bias is related to competitiveness. When this exercise is done in public, there may be unsustainable demands in the private sector. 22% is still a lot. Hopefully this will not impact on the debt . "
Makoond Raj, Director of the Joint Economic Council: " We need more regular adjustments "" In the budget, we said that the exercise of adjustment should be done more regularly. At least every two years. Five years is too distanced, with significant costs to the budget and impact on inflation . "
Jack Bizlall trade unionist: " Too big gap between managers and those at the bottom "" I note that those who paid up to Rs 30,000 were not required to rectify the loss of power purchase, while executives and judges had such an increase stupendous. When the gap between these two groups, inflation will increase and there is a loss of purchasing power of those at the bottom of the ladder. I make a call to Parliamentarians to correct this fundamental error . "
Bagooaduth Kallooa, President of the Nursing Association: " We're disappointed, "" The director of PRB did not understand our process. We asked for a salary review. Base salary increased from Rs 12,000 to Rs 14,000. This increase will not attract young people into the profession. It does not reflect the amount of work we do each year while the Department asks us to do more. Increases in allowances are also humiliating. They vary between Rs 5 to Rs 10. However, I am satisfied with the measures taken to retain nurses.Otherwise there would be an exodus. "
Haniff Peerun, President of Mauritius plowing Congress: " The 2008 recommendations remain unimplemented "" Many decisions made ??in the last report of the PRB in 2008 have not been implemented. And now we find ourselves with a new report. It is important that the government set up a committee to ensure that the recommendations of the PRB are applied. We also ask to pay in one installment. "
Suttyhudeo Tengur, President of the GHTU: " Bankruptcy of ideas "" This report does not meet the aspirations of primary school teachers as a rationalization of their wages relative to the wages of their secondary colleagues. We proposed alignment of wages given specific criteria such as qualifications and responsibilities for the PRB makes such an exercise. However, it seems that the PRB would not innovate and it is a bankruptcy of ideas at this Institute itution. "
Ashok Subron, spokesman of the General Workers Federation: " Lower wages for petty officials "" Only the frames of the public took the spotlight. Officials at the bottom of the scale are found, each with a pay cut, when taking into account inflation has increased by 22.3% between 2008 and 2012. An official who touched Rs 12,600 in 2008 finally lost Rs 59.80 in value. Same for an employee who touched Rs 31,250 in 2008. With this increase of 22% PRB, it is losing Rs 188.75 . "
