Detroit police officers plan to protest wage and benefit cuts to be implemented under a new contract imposed on a number of municipal unions.
Members of the Detroit Police Officers Association and the Detroit Lieutenants and Sergeants Association say they'll rally at 11 a.m. Thursday at City Hall.
Police are among hundreds of city workers angered over contracts Mayor Dave Bing says will help the city save more than $100 million a year.
Salaries will be cut by 10 percent and employees must come up with 20 percent of their medical costs.
Under a financial stability agreement brokered between Bing and the state, new terms were set after some contracts were allowed to expire June 30. There were no negotiations between the city and unions on the new contracts.
