16,000 healthcare staff to get salary increase from September
16,000 public healthcare administrative, ancillary and support staff will see a salary increase of between 4 and 10 per cent from this month.
This comes after a review of healthcare staff salaries by the Health Ministry and the healthcare clusters.
And by 2014, 2,000 of these staff can expect a wage increase of between 10 and 20 per cent through a progressive wage model.
The model has been developed to help lower wage workers attain sustainable wage increases through productivity, training and job redesign.
It will focus on three key groups - Health Attendants, Healthcare Assistants and Patient Service Associates.
These announcements were made at the the launch of the Healthcare Cluster Tripartite Workgroup, which focuses on raising productivity of the healthcare sector.
The tripartite partners comprise the Health Ministry, six public healthcare clusters and NTUC's healthcare clusters of unions.
