Denis Coderre is persona non grata at fires and other emergencies from now on.
The Mayor likes to put on a firefighter's coat and helmet and visit the scene of a fire from time to time to show support for fire victims and appreciation for the work that firefighters do.
But, the firefighters don't appreciate the stance he's taken concerning their pension plans.
The president of the union,Ronald Martin, has published an open letter to the mayor asking him not to show up when they are at work any more because of the Mayor's support for Bill 3, which will reform the pension plans of municipal workers in Quebec.
The law would mandate municipalities and public service unions to share the cost of pension deficits.
Martin says Coderre's whole-hearted support for the legislation is at odds with what he had told the union during the election campaign last fall.
