SHAH ALAM, SUN:
PEOPLE living in Selangor may soon get to enjoy government counter services - seven days a week if a proposal from the State government materialises.
“With the government services continuing for seven days, the public can utilize our services, like renewing licenses on any day.”
He said the five-day week but continuous service was an accepted practice in hospitals, police and even in the private sector like hypermarkets.
Speaking at a Workers Day forum at Stadium Malawati here today, he said discussions with the private sector were also needed on the sector following suit.
“I will bring this issue for further discussions within the government and the private sector.”
The move means that government staff will get a five-day week but their two off days will not necessarily be on the weekends. Staff will be expected to take turns working during the weekends.
