* Sri Lankan government is to establish a National Wage Policy
Sat, Feb 22, 2014, 02:15 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Feb 22, Colombo: The doctor's union of Sri Lanka, Government Medical Officers Association (GMOA) says the government is looking at formulating a National Wage Policy.

The GMOA has said that Treasury Secretary Dr. P. B. Jayasundara following a directive from President Mahinda Rajapaksa had directed the new National Pay Commission Secretary Bandula Wijerathna to formulate a National Wage Policy.

GMOA General Committee member, Dr. Navin de Soyza has been quoted in the local media as saying that the main objective of the wage policy was to rectify anomalies and discrepancies in the salaries of government, semi-government and private sector professionals.

The President has issued the directive following a proposal made by him in the 2014 Budget to establish a new National Wage Policy since a large number of professionals such as doctors, engineers and architects in the government sector were leaving the country in search of greener pastures.

According to Dr. Soyza, Wijerathna had called for representations from government, semi-government, private sector organizations and trade unions to submit proposals for the proposed National Wage Policy.
