Police brotherhood fights back with ads
For the past year, unionized Montreal Police officers have been on an average three day work week as part of a pilot project.
Recently, the city assessed the results and said it was not working.
This morning, the union representing police officers in Montreal has taken out full-page ads in a couple of the newspapers and has organized a demonstration to show their displeasure.
The ad is a mock job offer for officers who don't mind getting insulted, don't mind giving up their family life, and don't mind working a constantly changing work cycle from days, to evening and overnights.
It's all part of a pressure campaign from the brotherhood who promised it would fight the city's decision.
It is also planning a protest outside police headquarters downtown Thursday morning. Only officers off duty are allowed to show up.
