1966 51 1967 59 1968 49 1969 72 1970 64 1972 134 1973 160 1974 140 1975 182 1976 167 1977 234 1978 223 1979 280 1980 247

Achievements/Benefits:
1970 - 1980

1. The Union, based on recommendation of Benham Report successfully initiated a training scheme in 1962, after persistent demands. The 1st batch of Veterinary Assistants was trained in 1962. It was a one-year course, subsequently in 1965, it was increased to 2,years.

2- An upward revision of salary scale for Veterinary Assistants were claimed by the Union tedious years of negotiations resulted in a revised version being granted w.e.f. [.65 vide Service Circular 8/1966. This was accepted under protest by the Union.

3-Colombo Plan training: Since 1961 Veterinary Assistants have been sent to overseas or various short and long duration courses under Colombo Plan and FAO scholarships. This was kindly considered and offered by our Department when it was proposed and persuaded by our Union in 1961.

The Union has successfully sought the change of materials for Veterinary Assistants uniform. Formally it was khaki and cotton type, presently, it is Dacron polyester pants and Tetron light blue shirts.

Veterinary Assistants driving Government vehicles were given License fee of $20.00 annually. This the Union has achieved by persuading Veterinary HQ.

The Union's persistent persuasion to create more special grade and superscale post for Veterinary Assistants have been answered and in 1979 a total of 29 special grade and 2 superscale posts were created and filled by Veterinary HQ.

In seeking better prospects, the Union has been persistent in its approach to create opportunities for Veterinary Assistants to upgrade themselves and of its pursuits one was to admit Veterinary Assistants (trained) to MARA Colleges to pursue Animal Health and Animal Production course. The Head Quarters approved this and not less than 15 Veterinary Assistants have been admitted to the college.

The benefits the Union achieved were not as a result of aggressiveness in our approach with higher authority. In contrast, our endeavors were noiseless discussions with the Director General of Veterinary Services. Senior officials in Veterinary HQ have been sympathetic with whatever we asked. More so, they were forthcoming and eager to help us achieve certain benefits. This has been a greater achievement than anything else.

We have forwarded the following for consideration to the Director General of Veterinary Services. They are
1- Overtime.
ii; Driving allowances for Veterinary Assistants driving Government vehicles as stipulated in the relevant circulars.

We hope the Director General would intercede for the members to JPA to achieve these two benefits.
