A request for wage freeze across the Board



The city will ask all commissions, boards and agencies who receive funding from tax payers to impose a two-year wage freeze on its employees. Councilor Chris Titus put forward the motion last night asking for the wage freeze this and next year or following any labour contracts. Those to be asked include Enterprise Saint John, Saint John Transit and the city Police Commission.

In addition, council expects any organization looking for funding from the city in next year's budget and in 2011 to provide financial documents showing their wages and salaries have also been frozen. Councilor Carl Killen was the sole person to oppose the motion.
