* New salary structure being formulated for Sri Lankan public sector
Sat, Mar 22, 2014, 10:33 pm SL Time, ColomboPage News Desk, Sri Lanka.

Mar 22, Colombo: The National Pay Commission appointed by the President last November is formulating a new salary structure for the employees of public service, corporations and statutory boards.

The 19-member commission appointed to replace the former National Salaries and Cadre Commission is soliciting the views and suggestions from the employees of these institutions to formulate a National Wage Policy.

Unions and organizations as well as individual employees can submit their views and suggestions to the Commission, the co-Chairman of the National Pay Commission Wimalasena Dissanayake said.

The Chairman told the state-run radio that the relevant documents could be forwarded to the National Pay Commission at BMICH in Colombo until 31st March.

According to Dissanayake, suggestions received will be forwarded to five committees for their review and an interim report will be presented to the government before the next budget.

The new commission is also expected to recommend a new methodology for payment of pensions since the government has a high pension bill.

The President during his budget presentation last year noted that there is an urgent need to formulate a national wage policy due to the widening gap between public sector and private sector salaries.
