Good news for the more than 34,000 security officers here – the Government has accepted recommendations to increase their monthly salaries and limit their overtime hours.
Security officers will, over the next three years, see their basic pay increase by about $300, followed by a minimum yearly increment of at least 3 per cent in the three years after that.
From 2021, security officers can work overtime (OT) only for a maximum of 72 hours every month.
Currently, companies can apply for exemptions for their workers to go past the limit. These recommendations came from the Security Tripartite Cluster (STC), which revealed them yesterday.
