The female secretaries of Sri Lanka Cricket Board (SLC) are set to be promoted as assistant managers, Cricket Age reliably learns. In addition, the SLC top brass has reportedly decided to give a salary increment as well to all the secretaries.
Cricket Age understands that one of the main reason for this is that board’s female secretaries have raised objection over the newly recruited employees with the higher salary package than theirs, particularly in media division.
“After Salary increments of top officials (Ashley De Silva, Jerome Jayaratne and Aruna De Silva) last month, the board is set to do the same for secretaries after objection from several employees” an SLC insider told Cricket Age.
The decision, though long due, has received mixed reactions however, as many at SLC opines that there are many at Maitland Place, who deserves salary increments and promotions before secretaries.
“The top officials secretly managed salary increments. Now, Secretaries are also getting increments and promotions. However, there is no one to look after plenty of those non manipulative employees, who also deserves the same” the insider added.
There is another angle in the story as well. Many at SLC believes that this whole drama has been created to benefit one particular secretary. However, as alone her salary can’t be increased, the board is mulling over to give salary increments to all the secretaries!
The SLC hierarchy is also aware of the gravity of the matter. That was the main reason, the secretaries promotion and salary increment proposal was not tabled during yesterday’s Management Committee (MC) meeting. However, as it is related to female secretaries, it is expected to be done secretly, like Ashley and gangs increments!
