RCMP members will have union choice

KAMLOOPS — Last January, the Supreme Court of Canada gave the Federal Government one year to table legislation, which would allow RCMP Members the right to collective bargaining.

Spokesperson for the Mounted Police Professionals Association, Rob Creasser, says efforts have been made to unionize previously, but until now, none have been successful.

"Members are being forced to do more with less, and getting paid less, and finally people are saying enough's enough," said Creasser, when asked about why it's time for the RCMP to organize.

While Creasser is pleased with the decision by the Trudeau Government to introduce legislation, he says there are still many roadblocks on the path to a fully unionized RCMP.
