6 factors to adjust civil service pay

Chief Executive Carrie Lam said the Chief Executive-in-Council will consider a basket of six factors regarding civil service pay.   Ahead of today’s Executive Council meeting in the morning, Mrs Lam noted this year's pay trend survey results show that there is a positive rate, especially at the higher level of civil service positions.   However, she stressed that the survey is not the only consideration regarding the civil service pay annual adjustment.   “As the Secretary for Civil Service has repeatedly said in public, we have been practising this repeatedly in previous years that we do not just rigidly follow the pay trend survey results to adjust the civil service pay on an annual basis - there is a basket of six factors.   “We are still in this process. So for the time being, no decision has been made on adjustments to civil service pay in the 2022 pay adjustment exercise.”
