DETROIT (WXYZ) - The union representing Detroit Police officers headed back to court Monday in a battle against wage cuts and changes.
The Detroit Police Officers Association sued the city to stop Mayor Bing from cutting the officers' pay by ten percent and making work rule changes
The proposed budget cuts were also discussed in a Monday Detroit City Council meeting. They could be voted on as early as Tuesday.
The Detroit Officers Association addressed the council about the changes Monday afternoon after city officials addressed council members.
Even if council votes the measure down, the new program manager for the city of Detroit can still implement the changes.
On Thursday, the Bing administration proposed severe changes to pay and benefits and the Financial Advisory Board approved the plan.
Some of those cuts include: 10% slash in pay; reduction in vacation time; elimination of dental and vision coverage for retirees; elimination of cost of living adjustments for pensions.
For Detroit Police officers it would also mean changes in seniority that now take into consideration ability, attendance and sick time.
