KUCHING: The Congress of Unions of Employees in the Public and Civil Services (Cuepacs) Sarawak expects civil servants to change themselves, to adapt to technology.
According to Cuepacs chairman, Omar Bahrein Uni, Cuepacs acknowledge the digital challenges that civil servants are facing and will continue to face into the future.
“The delivery of government services requires civil servants to be tech-literate and skillful in the applications of the Information and Communication Technology (ICT) systems,” he said.
“All civil servants should be prepared to upgrade their IT skills because digital advances are very fast. By upgrading their skills, they won’t be left behind and badly affect the public service,” he added.
Omar said, Cuepacs Sarawak has a very good relationship with the state government which has helped us financially over the past three years.
“We greatly appreciate the good relationship and hopes that it will continue.
“We made annual courtesy calls on the chief minister (now premier) to whom we usually bring issues and problems faced by the civil servants in Sarawak,” he said..
