The proposed private sector pension scheme (PSPS) would be optional and employees could obtain their contributions with interest if they leave a job before mandatory 120 months to be eligible for the pension benefits, the government said.
The government in a bid to dispel doubts on the proposed private sector pension scheme said it would be presented in Parliament only after incorporating amendments and suggestions from all stake holders. (SAJ)

Well done FTZ Katunayake workers for fighting for justice for the entire private sector. Please keep the good work.

Even optional, not required at all. If the government does not have powers to order private sector employers to increase the salaries of the workers, then how come they have powers to order the employers to deduct monies from the workers to this so called fund. P.B.J can now stop printing of his infamous booklet and if already printed, keep it in his house for posterity as an antique.
