From the FOP website, there is a 2 page summary and a 43 page comprehensive list of proposals. The Sun Times also covers the story:
- Chicago Police officers are demanding a 24 percent pay hike over four years and a $3,000-a-year residency stipend to compensate them for being forced to live and send their kids to school in the city.
The Fraternal Order of Police is also seeking a reduction in merit promotions -- from 20 percent to 16 percent -- and a guarantee that promotional exams will be administered and graded on the same day.
To prevent the Chicago Police Department from depleting the ranks of the 25 districts, the union wants to cap at 5 percent the number of officers transferred out of units or districts.
