The chairman of the Thunder Bay Police Services Board confirmed Tuesday that uniformed officers have shot down another major change in their shift schedule.
Joe Virdiramo, in an interview with CKPR Radio, said members of the Thunder Bay Police Association voted against a move that could eventually see officers work 12-hour shifts.
In 2008, the police force and union negotiated a move from eight-hour to 10-hour shifts.
Virdiramo said they will continue to work toward a solution that works for both sides.
A police association spokesman would not comment on the vote.
