The Amalgamated Union of Public Employees (AUPE) welcomes the Public Service Division’s announcement that with effect from 1 August 2022, the salaries of approximately 23, 000 civil servants will be adjusted to keep pace with the market and enable the Civil Service to attract and retain its fair share of talent.

It’s been some time from the last adjustment in 2014. This is an important review to enable our civil servants to be fairly remunerated compared to the market. Other development opportunities that civil servants can look forward to include structured job rotations, formal training and project work.

In addition to the above, AUPE has been working with PSD to redesign the jobs of officers in the Operations Support Scheme (OSS), to improve career progression and raise productivity in the long run for these officers.

AUPE thanks PSD for taking our feedback in this review. We look forward to strengthening our partnership with PSD to attract, develop and retain a future-ready workforce that will continue to deliver its best for Singapore and Singaporeans.
