Agree with this. Really unfair that most of us engineers are working tirelessly some even on site during cb period and didn't receive our MAC. It was introduced as a form of retaining specialised skills in IT, engineering etc. and by not giving won't it defeats the purpose in retaining these skills? I foresee a number of engineers leaving due to this.[/QUOTE]

Someone said it was only deferred? You said not receiving anything? Are you telling the truth?

anyway, HR told me MAC is not 100% cancel yet, it is just postpone to end of the year. I can still proceed to transfer as plan and it will not affect the payout.

good analogy. agree that the elite should bear higher consequences during time of crisis. well said!

lucky i am on specialised scheme, the part of the bonus equivalence to mac is already merged into my base pay. i will not be affected as long as there is no pay cut.

if there is, still EVERYONE will cut together which is fair.
suggest you look for opportunity at other agencies or min that offer specialised scheme for your expertise.

btw, i am from IT in GovTech.

Further to MAS's call to boost local Singaporean headcount in finance, the government must also retract the encroachment of CECA in the following core Singaporean pillars of society:
- Engineering.
- IT.
- Accounting.
- Medical.

Or else all the experienced Singaporean staff will be flushed to the drain thanks to skill-no-future courses and blindness of the ministers in charge.
