The city’s tentative concessions to striking civic workers may prompt the city’s non-unionized managers and supervisors to seek financial compensation.

Richard Majkot, executive director of an association representing the majority of the city’s non-unionized employees, said they could use the Employment Standards Act, a tactic he said was successful in a 2004 dispute.

“There’s going to be some major issues if city council doesn’t revisit the compensation for non-union employees,” said Majkot, executive director of the City of Toronto Administrative, Professional, Supervisory Association.

Non-unionized employees were handed a wage freeze earlier this year and have spent the duration of the strike toiling to maintain the city’s essential services.

“A lot of our members are going to be disillusioned and disappointed,” Majkot added.

In April, Mayor David Miller pushed a wage freeze for non-unionized employees through council and cancelled performance bonuses for employees at the top of their pay scale.
