Border guard union rejects name tags on privacy grounds

The union representing front-line border guards in Canada has vowed to fight the modernization of uniforms that includes nametags. The union cites officer safety and privacy as grounds for their objections. See: Name tags for Canada border agents rejected by union - Windsor - CBC News.

In my view, accountability to the public trumps whatever meagre privacy interest they think they might have.
