This Could Be Fun

Going back a rumor or two...
  • Daley has asked the exempts for 20, count them, 20 days w/o pay. Source says they have 10 days to decide whether to accept or resume civil service rank. Equivalent to a 7% pay cut.
Let's look at the last sixteen months of Department history:
  • J-Fed arrives. He knows almost no one, just Peterson if the rumors are true. He then changes 90% of the command staff with input from whom? There's only one person who could or even would allow him to do this - Shortshanks;
  • The current unpleasantness begins and continues;
  • Now Shortshanks is prepared to return any exempt who won't play ball with his 7% givebacks to their career service rank and grab the next sucker in line who's willing to give up 7% of their salary to run Districts, Units and Areas. Their primary qualification is going to be that they were willing to take a $10,000 or more hit?
And this is going to happen right before the killing season heats up? Summer festival season? The Third of July? Not that we're looking to drum up any sympathy for J-Fed, but how the hell is he supposed to run a Department with this amount of interference from Shortshanks? J-Fed has made any number of truly boneheaded moves, but this one by Daley takes the cake. He should be counting himself lucky that some exempts (and there are a few) who are trying to make a difference and address problems by working 60 and 70 hours a week for free.

Someone asked if Car 47 would be taking the 20 days off. We heard he offered to take 30 days off because everything he's made over sergeants pay for the past few years is just gravy anyway.

Someone else asked if the civilian exempt who was running around with a member of the "Policy Group" while illegally carrying a firearm would be adding the 20 days off to his expected suspension time. We still aren't sure if J-Fed is maintaining the separate tiers of discipline for the "Friends of J-Fed" and the unwashed masses. Time will tell.

How do the days without pay affect the exempt pension??????????

Here is a thought... since the city and the idiot mayor are trying to use the economy as a bargaining chip, try this one out for size... 2 years ago, when our contract expired, the economy was BOOMING! In the time since, it has tanked... the city keeps using the economy as a reason for us to give up retro, take a shit raise, and give more towards insurance while making numerous concessions... Why doesnt the union use this to our advantage??? Agree that we will use the economic state as a guage... So for the first year of our contract, when the economy was BOOMING, we get a 12% raise... afterall, we are using the economy now, city says so... The first year we will get 12% raise, a 30% refund on our insurance, a funded pension, and retro pay for only the first year... after that, we will agree to 2%, 1% 1% for the next 3 years... Based on the economy, that seems fair... we wont take retro on the second or third year, as the economy tanked... but the first year, since the economy was BOOMING we will all get 12% retro... Use the economy against them just as they are using it against us!!! Use the line "the city is lucky for that first year we all stayed on, as the economy was so strong, and no one wanted to be the police, the city is lucky they had police at all!!! Start using their lines against them!!! Hell, hire a PR firm to convey this and wage the battle in the media for us!!! Would anyone be against a $20,000 retro check and a 16% raise over 4 years??? This would set a precedence that when the economy is stable, we get a HUGE raise! And when it is not, we take a low raise... it all equals out and everyone is happy! The economy is already showing signs of recovery, so use that too! The city is cutting off its nose to spite its face, so lets address that and make sure the arbitrator understands that the economy hasnt always been in the shitter! Force these clowns to either open up the books, or give us what is due! Come on, FOP get a fucking clue!

OK, how much is the difference between Lt, Capt., and Commander? Hell, if they were smart, they could make that up on O.T.! A few good days and they would be ahead of the game! But God knows, we can’t stick together! Id just the DISTRICT COMMANDERS said “Fuck it, this shit just aint worth it, give me back my bars!” Then the next group of Lt’s/Capt’s declined the promotion….. Yes, I know, lay off the booze… it will never happen….

Wow! I bet those double, triple (and more)-promoted clout hacks would've never fathomed having to give up a 7% salary cut.

Next, factor in the countless envelopes and "favors" they've remitted over the years.

Let's not forget the portion of their souls that they've sold to the devil (Daley) to fuel their meteoric ascensions.

It'll be truly orgasmic to watch those who've contributed to the demise of a once-great department reap what they've sown - even if their just-desserts are a pittance of their investment.

Members of the FOP should hit the money box, if they the abiltiy. SEND THE MESSAGE TO THE CITY IT IS OUR CONTRACTUAL RIGHT! This is not a job action. It simply is a right given under the contract. Exercise your rights.

The exempts are getting screwed. I tought I would never say this about exempts, but given they take a thankless job, where they are beholden to the Mayor, the exempts should get something, and it should not be 20 unpaid furlo days!

The idea of giving exempts 20 UNPAID furlo days will surely not increase morale. Like it, or not, they are the leaders of the CPD.

SCC please put a post regarding members hitting the MONEY box.

Now, now....let's use the proper terminology!! "They" are NOT "Exempts". "They" are "Command Staff". Now repeat after me - "Command Staff". I wonder how much time and money thinking up this name change took and I wonder how much time and money this will cost the taxpayers. How much will have to be rewritten, reprinted and reworded to acknowledge the different nomenclature? Have we gotten to the point where we have more bosses than patrolmen? Sure seems like it sometimes.I can't wait for my summer furlo. Does anyone know if the 20 days off without pay for the "Command Staff" is more or less than Capt. pay or Lieut. pay? I bet there will be some who will turn down the "promotion" and won't want the headache or the possibility of contracting an STD for the position.

Well SCC and others, you got what you asked for. Let's see how it works out with some of our incompetent W/C's doing the A/A's. That watch secretary that was NOT putting you with the J/O you can't stand? Hope the W/C will be as compassionate- right. Think the W/C is going to cover for you when you missed T/C on furlough? How 'bout that crossing guard supervisor entering your mover and parker activity during their so called down time? Hope they all get counted. Guess that crossing they handle every day will have to be picked up by a beat car. It's easy to bitch that there are too many hot broads being hidden in the front office-'cause they are. But let's see what the alternative is gonna look like. Be carefull what you ask for you just might...Oh, wait, you did.

Expect allot more 06B,C D cars on the second watch sheets.

Okay, work 80 hours plus a week, live a very stressed life, made to do more with less, live life under a microscope, miss 90 percent of time with your kids as they are growing up, leave your wife home alone every singe night including days off, take the blackberry with you even on vacation, pay for every raffle, dinner, or whatever the troops are selling, the aldermen are selling and the community people are selling, buy Recognition tickets for 500.00 to give to your staff and on top of that, give up one whole check when we are all living check to check anyway with the increased cost of living in Chicago, property taxes, increased kids tuition because you better not send your kid to a public school!

who do you think keeps the districts running with little to no help from the command staff? you want to know how many times the watch has had to purchase items needed for day to day operations.cause the supplies needed are pending an outside contract?(make your own property bags..lol).how many times I or my co worker has brought in their own tools to fix something that needed to be fix cause waitng to even see a building engineer is Fn stupid.(where is that heat/air theromstat anyway?) to keep the computers up and running (work tickets months in backlog..lol.. i know people)the xerox machines?(OMG 011 has NONE working for more then a day) radio and pdt equipment?(we cant mount the new pdts to the old brackets and motor maintence wont put in new mounts without a work order which wont be approved LMAO) who shuffles pools cars so that everyone has a half way decent semi operational car..and makes deals with the area gararge to keep the cars up and running ( home run in gives discounts for mutiply pizzas BTW)

You should be a sergeant. On the last list I was piddling for a year with my score in the very low three hundreds since there were rumors Cline would yank the list. Unfortunately, there were merit picks in the first class of sergeants that will be fifteen hundred names behind you. The merit process is the amalgamation of affirmative action and Irish corruption.

Keating was allegedly made a LT. at at special city council meeting last year or the year before, pull up his name, get his star number and run the history on clear.

Watch secretaries are not bid spots, some of them were desk bid personnel but it was a "gimmie" spot for the watch commander. But like someone else said, the sheets will be reworked to fit the ones that aren't bid on the desk.

if the exempts take unpaid days, that doesn't mean they are off, it means they have to work and not get paid for it, so there would be no need for an actor to make out of grade pay.

Mealer? Crump-Hales? Never worked for them, but from what I've heard, not very flexible. Even so, If you're doing what you should be, you probably have very little contact with those bosses if you work in their districts, and little contact with the boss is usually a GOOD THING

Don't assume that every exempt has "lost their way." Many of the bosses some of you bash as a group bleed blue, and stand with their troops proudly.
To the poster who proclaimed us as "Masters haters," nothing could be further from the truth. Yes, his resume is impressive, with prior military experience AND a coveted Harvard Law degree. Unfortunately, none of those accomplishments have apparently provided Masters with the skills needed to "move this Dept. into the 21st century."
And it shows. Daily. Between our equally unprepared-to-lead Supt. to the C/O of our dubious "Policy Group" to our own sworn exempts who hold down the top 5 exempt positions within the CPD, we have become a small shadow of what was once a functional and proud Police Dept. Even when the clouds push off and these civilian drop ins have moved on to possibly wreck other PDs across the country, it will take us years to recover from the extensive amount of damage done to a Dept. and the loss of personnel we had here who were adequately prepared to lead us but were forced out or run off by the bastards holding the aces today. I used to boast about being a member of this Dept. when I traveled. Now, I leave all of my credentials at home when I leave the state; I'd much prefer to keep my affiliation with this place a secret; the pride is gone. The shame I feel today connected to this mess created in large part by the Mayor seems to grow every day. Retirement cannot come fast enough.

Doty never did shit for the working police in 006 except use them. He sustained LOTS of CR numbers and denied HUNDREDS of working officers awards. His loss is a great gain for this already sorry department.
Doty got lots of CR's himself for the way he mistreated the officers in 006.

Very smart Asst. Supt. all Merit Cuello and DS O'Keefe very smart. I bet the Mayor loves you two for this idea.

NO they won't. The Exempts will take these mandatory days off, if this nonsense goes through, piecemeal, two or three days a month. They'll space it out; Lots of exempts take a day or two off together, with their front office being managed by the District Manager, and the watches running themselbes, led by their W/Cs.
