TORONTO — A pay freeze looms for the city of Toronto's 4,000 non-union employees this year, under belt-tightening proposals unveiled Monday by Mayor David Miller.

“At a time of significant challenge to the economy, we have to be prudent and careful,” he told council's employee and labour relations committee, which unanimously adopted his recommendations.

If adopted by council next month, the measures would mean no cost-of-living pay hike for all non-union workers this year, with only a 1-per- cent increase for 2010. As well, the city would cancel lump-sum bonuses over the next two years to those at the top of the pay range.

Those still progressing to their maximum salary – about half of all non-unionized staff – are still eligible to earn a merit pay raise of 3-per-cent this year if they meet or exceed job performance targets.
