The police unions say that they will provide minimum cover, but won't be taking part in the clamp down on speeding drivers. Police trades unionist Gert Cockx: "The speed camera marathon will be a very difficult operation."
A recent Constitutional Court ruling means that all police officers will now have to wait until the age of 62 in order to retire and receive a full pension. The unions have met with government representatives, but say that they didn't hear a single proposal to sort out the situation. "They didn’t even ask us what the unions wanted" said trade unionist Vincent Houssin.
