Default COL and merit raises

My company has now eliminated annual raises, has anyone else had this happen?

Maybe you should eliminate your company.

What is their alternative?

Temporary or permanent?

You should scale down your future effort proportionate to expected raises. If you think you should be getting a 10% raise to cover inflation and all the good work you’ve done over the year, and you work 40 hours/week now, consider working 40 x 90% = 36 hours/week for the next year.

Alternatively, go find another job. Employers don’t get away with this kind for too long if people vote with their feet.

Messaging is permanent but perhaps theyd bring it back in the future if a bunch of people leave or something (i think they want that though).

Alternative is changing jobs within the company or promotion and determining your new fixed pay.

The worst part is that it's not the deadwood but the good performers that will leave.
