'Compensation' Talk At Queen's Park
The province is about to start the conversation on "compensation" but won't reveal their hand.
Finance Minister Dwight Duncan will be meeting with reporters on Thursday to discuss "compensation", with a technical briefing on the matter scheduled for 1:30.
There is speculation that the Liberals may be about to reveal what will be included in its bill on a public sector wage freeze or perhaps launch a review on bonus pay in the public sector.
Dalton McGuinty has said the pay-outs have been significant, with all but 200 of the 8,900 public sector managers getting bonuses as high as 12 per cent.
Meantime, after the McGuinty Liberals legislated a teachers contract earlier in September, the premier said there would be a wage-freeze for the rest of the public sector.
The Progressive Conservatives have been calling for an across-the board public sector wage freeze since last year's election campaign.
The NDP say legislating the teachers was unconstitutional.
