Abu Dhabi: Mohammad Butti Al Qubaisi, a member from Abu Dhabi, is to demand that salary increases be added up to the basic salary.

President His Highness Shaikh khalifa Bin Zayed Al Nahyan in December ordered increases in the salaries of all Emirati federal Government employees to mark the UAE’s 40th National Day.

The pay raises, which begin at 35 per cent, took effect in January, with employees in higher pay grades getting a 45 per cent salary increase.

The decision also provided for a special bonus to the salaries of ministry undersecretaries and assistant undersecretaries.

Judicial authority employees also received 100 per cent of their basic salaries as a “special bonus”, while health and education ministry employees received 100 per cent of their basic salaries as a “technical bonus”.

Some people who receive welfare from the Social Affairs Ministry received 20 per cent more in their allowances.

Abdullah Hamad Al Shamsi, a member from Ajman and second deputy speaker of the House, is to put another question to Obaid Humaid Al Tayer, Minister of State for Financial Affairs, on increasing pensions of retirees of the Emirates Post.
