CBA raised chief executive Ralph Norris's pay package by six per cent to $9.21 million in 2008-09, as his long-term share-based payments were increased. But Norris, his executive team and the directors of the bank will have their salary and fees cut this financial year, in a move CBA announced in April. Bank employees earning more than $100k will have their salaries frozen, while employees earning less will get a 1.5 per cent pay rise. (Business Day)
