Those in charge of Saskatchewan’s Crown Corporations are taking a three and half percent cut in pay as are deputy ministers
The move takes effect May 1.
In a release, Premier Wall says these senior public servants know it is important to share the responsibility for addressing the financial challenges being faced.
- MLA’s and government staff asked to take pay cut by Premier Brad Wall
- Negative reaction from Saskatchewan unions to 3.5 percent pay cut request
The move is expected to save 280-thousand dollars per year.
MLA’s have already cut their pay by 3 percent with all public sector employees doing the same thing with those reductions possibly coming from unpaid days off.
