The following was sent to editors for an Elsevier journal; a copy of the email mysteriously fell into my hands, and I reproduce it here (in part):
Following discussions with the board and at Elsevier this year, we feel that a change in how you are compensated for your editorial work is needed for next year. We sincerely appreciate the time and expertise that you dedicate to the journal, and know that without it, the journal would not be what it is today. Beginning in 2013, we would like to offer all Associate Editors an honorarium per handled manuscript (be it a rejection or acceptance) of 60 USD.
I guess this is one way to prevent editorial board revolts!
