SHAH ALAM, 16 JAN: Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim informed that the State Government never received any complaint memorandum regarding the freezing of annual salary increase and adjustments from the staff of Selangor Islamic University College (KUIS).
In a brief reaction, Abdul Khalid said that the issue of withholding salary increase is not imposed to all employees despite their contractual status.
“I remember as a board member of KUIS, all this is in accordance with service procedures. According to usual procedures, in my opinion, if necessary, salary increase should be given and a raise will be given.
“I do not see (issues) regarding withholding salary increase because even if someone is working on a contract basis, usually this issue does not arise.
“I did not receive any memorandum from officers involved in this issue,” he said at a press conference after the Exco Meeting.
Previous media reports quoted that the freezing of annual salary increment began in 2011 which involves about 200 KUIS staff, including lecturers apart from the downturn in new student registration.
Abdul Khalid added that the reduction of students which allegedly before this could have been increased seeing that there has been many requests to enter KUIS.
“(Reduction) is no problem, it can be increased. Actually the demand to enter KUIS institution is plentiful, but we want to determine the appropriate channels,” he said.
