ST. JOHN'S, N.L. - A commission has voted to freeze the salaries of legislature members in Newfoundland and Labrador until after the next election in 2015.
The legislature's management commission voted unanimously in favour of the freeze Wednesday based on a recommendation from Finance Minister Jerome Kennedy.
The wage freeze means members of the legislature will earn $95,357, though they receive extra pay for additional duties, such as cabinet postings.
Cabinet ministers, the Speaker and the leader of the official Opposition make an extra $54,072.
Members of the legislature last received a raise in 2009.
