Believe me, they get overtime. They are on salary but it is based on 40 hr weeks. Any time over that qualifies for time and a half.
I used to get overtime against my salary job a few years ago before we were "Annualized".......we call it Analized..
....and it was a pretty good deal.
Most companies now don't pay overtime to salaried employees.
RCMP are unionized, which means they have bargaining power just like hourly workers.
That'* why you see cop blitzes every once and a while. They are sponsered by the insurance companies to help keep their costs down. The insurance companies pay the police overtime money to work extra hours to set up speed traps and the like.
