CUEPACS president slammed for playing politics

CUEPACS president slammed for playing politics
Civil service union CUEPACS president Omar Osman (pic) was today heavily criticised for urging government servants to back Barisan Nasional at the coming general election.
“Omar’s act of urging civil servants to support BN is inappropriate. It is their right to choose whichever party they prefer,” said Jerai member of parliament Firdaus Jaafar.
CEUPACS, he said, should be professional and should not become part of any political party.
“His action will cause civil servants to lose public trust,” added Firdaus.
Firdaus, who is also PAS Youth exco member, said Omar should instead focus on the well-being of civil servants including fighting for some 13,000 contract staff to have their status converted to permanent employees.
Omar had called on civil servants to support prime minister Najib Razak’s administration, saying that voting for the opposition could affect their employment benefits.
But Firdaus said civil servants should carefully evaluate the offers put forward by Pakatan Rakyat in its manifesto.
Among others, PR promised reduction of housing loan interest and wages to commensurate workload.
