A long fight to give RCMP officers the right to form an association, or even a union to handle their collective bargaining is now set to end Friday morning. Mounted Police Professional Association of Canada spokesman Rob Creasser says that’s when the Supreme Court of Canada will deliver its decision…
The High Court is hearing an appeal of a lower court decision that found RCMP regulations preventing Mounties from forming an independent association was not a violation of their charter rights. RCMP officers across Canada will be awaiting a decision this Friday….that will determine whether they can form independent associations to handle their collective bargaining. Mounted Police Professional Association of Canada spokesman Rob Creasser isn’t about to speculate….but will be among those anxious to hear this weeks ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada.
A lower court had ruled previously that RCMP regulations that denied RCMP officers the right to form their own association, or union was not a violation of their charter of rights. The Mounted Police Professional Association had initially feared a key ruling by the supreme court of Canada that will impact every RCMP officer might be delayed until may. Now the association’s Kamloops based spokesman Rob Creasser says the wait won’t be nearly as long..
The decision will deal with an appeal of a lower court ruling that upheld RCMP regulations preventing Mounties from forming an independent association to handle collective bargaining.
Mounted Police Association speaks up about non-charter compliant law and regulations
The Mounted Police Professional Association of Canada fears regulations under the enhanced RCMP accountability act will deny RCMP Officers basic constitutional rights.
Kamloops based spokesman Rob Creasser says the regulations could result in officers who refuse to answer self incriminating questions during code of conduct investigations…jailed, or subject to a 5-thouand dollar fine.
The association is calling on Canadians to lobby their members of parliament….to intervene….before the regulations are implemented. The mounted police professional association of Canada is appealing to Canadians to lobby members of parliament about a new law that denies RCMP members’ basic rights. Spokesman Rob Creasser says the regulations being drafted for the enhanced RCMP accountability act would see those charged with crimes having greater rights than RCMP members in code of conduct investigations.
Creasser warns if these regulations go into force…it will be another reason why potential new recruits will shy away from considering a career with the RCMP.
