New Schedule DOA?

The phones are buzzing, the e-mail flying and the comment section is starting to heat up.

At the very least, it's on life support.
  • The finger pointing has started and no one wants to look like the bad guy, but it looks like it's coming from city hall. City hall decided to take a look at it a little closer and found out that we like it so now they are having second thoughts. If it does get the ax the word is the pilot programs that are going on now will continue.
Shortshanks strikes again.

Don't forget to circulate those petitions.

Typical of the midget tyrant little richie pisspants, isn't it? We'll, I'm so tired of dealing with the 253rd job of "baby daddy" or "he jumped on me" by the 5th and 6th day that I don't do anything but answer the radio on those days. Get my event #'s for park check, CTA, Foot, Special Attention and then read the rest of the tour somewhere out of sight. Oh wait, I do that on the 1st through 4th days too. To hell with the "citizens" boys and girls, this is a paycheck. That's all it will ever be to me!

DOA? Dead? I went to the meeting of unit reps where FOP President Mark Donahue declared it was a done deal, it will be going forward beginning 1st Period 2010.

There would be nothing more destructive to this police department than killing this deal after it has been announced to the membership.

Is this what this police department has come down to? The CPD Superintendent makes a deal with the FOP president and now we have rumors it won't happen?

IT WAS A FUCKING DONE DEAL! OUT OF DONAHUE'S MOUTH! JODY WEIS APPROVED IT!

If true, this department is in for some very rocky times indeed.

If you thought morale was bad before, just wait and see what happens if daley pulls 4 and 2 off the table, just fucking wait.

If true, they can shove this police department right up daley's ass. I can think of nothing worse that taking this deal down after announcing it is agreed upon.

If this is true, I'll me disappointed, but not surprised. 4/2 would have benefited the department in ways one could only imagine. Center point is that it would make the copper on the beat ( well, most of them) happy. And what happens when you have happy employees?

1.They become MORE productive.
2.They cost the department less in sick time.

3. They are less stressed on the streets so complaints would drop.

4. Money saved (see above).

All in all, for the first time in a LONG time the city and department came up with something that the majority of it's members agreed to AND wanted. So this latest issue is either a ploy from Daley to squeeze more concessions out of us or he's completely gone dafted!

To the first poster...you are a coward. Do you even remember why you took this job in the first place? Do you really think that anyone "fool" that still works does it for the city? To impress j-fed or any other hack boss? Its because we enjoy doing it, we like our job, we enjoy putting pieces of trash in jail. Something you probably like to do too, before you became a bitter dog. What happened? You didn't put the time in to pass a test? Got bumped off your spot? Deal with it. You think were going to get raises or any schedule changes when the city is burning around us? Then you sir are a moron. It is never about them, it is however about us. For everyone of you that quits on this dept. it gives every jackass more balls to openly challenge us, making our lives that much more dangerous. But go on hiding under your rock, and when the garbage is at your front door because no one does anything about, bitch and moan that the police in your district don't do shit...

And since he is going to kick you in the pants on the way out, why put up with his BS. Put your middle finger directly into his eye. You have nothing to lose and a reputation to protect that you're not a toady. We might even start to believe in you. Otherwise you're sliding into your last year and becoming a lame duck.

The 4-2 schedule is gone because the CPD is having the audacity to try to organize into a serious voting block.

If there is one thing this Mayor understands, it is politics. He knows that if ANY group of voters who might oppose his way of doing business, starts to grow in size and gain any kind of momentum, it can have VERY SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES to the Daley Crime Family's operations.

His dad taught him well. His dad knew that Police and Firemen EACH could easily influence at least 10 voters come election time just between friends and family members. A riled up block of Police and Firemen may be able to control TEN TIMES that many votes.

Daddy Daley kept everyone at bay by using the divide and conquer concept. He did everything in his power to keep us from unionizing and encouraged each of several Police groups (FOP, CPA, COP) to stay strong and compete for members against the other organizations. A house divided, so to speak.

Jane Byrne changed everything for us. When the Police Officers endorsed her for Mayor and she won, she took care of us and we became unionized.

The stuttering prick has been beating us down ever since. It costs HIM nothing to have PO's arrested or smeared in the press all the time. It just puts public sentiment in his corner and ensures that the citizenry dislikes or even hates us so there will be less chance of any kind of voters "revolution" occurring led by a block of police officers against his evil empire.

Everything this man does is politics at its finest and, love him or hate him, he's an artist at what he does. Here's hoping he soon joins other famous artists and croaks so we can undo all the damage he has done to our society!

This Superintendant was brought in because the Mayor believed there was widespread corruption in the Department. He believed a Fed would lend an air of credibility to the City for his "bid".

Here is how it is working: there was no widespread corruption. You know that now Mayor. You now have a Fed in place that has no idea how to run a Police Department. Apples and oranges. My favorite story is when the Feds downsized and "fired" an entire group in a Unit and were amazed when they didn't go hit the unemployment line. 'You just get re-assigned?'

The one thing they could have done is clean up the disciplinary process. They have failed miserably at this also. The pristine Feds (along with family members!)have managed to get themselves mired in the stupidity. They have taken care of their own, and now, have compromised themselves. The two tier disciplinary system is now worse and more of an embarassment than ever. NICE JOB!

You have destroyed the desire of the Police Officers that were doing their job. We had our problems with some before, but now you have a Department that feels the City government, and most of the people in it HATE the people that would have laid down their lives for them. Morale is now a bigger problem that you 'imagined' corruption ever would have been.

Leave the Police Department alone Mr.Mayor. Keep the politics out of the Department and you will get a Department that will do it's job. But, that is asking the impossible isn't it Mr. Mayor?

Keep generating revenue you fools. For all of you guys that are working ot generate revenue you must be completely out of your mind. What does it take for you to understand that they (the mayor and the alderscum) are trying to divide us and get what they want. Quit writing that damn tickets and anything else that egnerates revenue. Only do the bare minimum such as a burglar alarm ticket. If you have to write an anov tell the person not to pay becasue the city does not come after them for the money. The only thing they understand is loss of revenue. Hit them in the pocket books where it hurts.

Furthermore vote any incumbent out of office next election. I also would be willing to help any P.O. that would be willing to run against Cardenas. Just remember you have to live in his ward to run. We can do the same thing that the HDO used to do only we can bring more foot soldiers in to back the P.O. running. If anybody is interested SCC lets back them. We can beat them at their own game especially now. City Hall knows that patronage is dead and that they will receive very little help from current city workers due to the alderman being unable to help them. Let's put a bunch of P.O.'s in to run against these thieves.

My first prediction: Daley orchestrated this to use as leverage during arbitration.

My second prediction: Not-so-smart coppers eagerly submit to the idea of giving up furlough days in order to get the 4 & 2. In essence the rank and file willingly takes it up the ass pipe because no one sticks together on any issue...AGAIN.

This is just another Daley "divide and conquer" technique to keep us off the same page and at each other's throat's.

We need to quietly take this "medicine" like men and with a big smile. Then EVERYONE needs to get on the same page and grind revenue generation to a screeching halt. Yes, that includes you company suck asses that can't even fathom giving up your early start "warrant car" or what-have-you.

I didn't care for the 4 & 2 to begin with, so I'm not too upset to say the least. But you goofs that thought, even for a second, that the City/Mayor/FOP had our best interests in mind by offering this schedule better wake up and realize that they couldn't care less about us. We're on our own again.

It's high time the majority of us learned to fight back. Sitting back time after time while the City and Department dry fucks us is getting really old.

If you haven't figured it out by now you never will.

All the media leaks, the aldermen jumping on board about us and CFD taking unpaid furlough days, and the presenting then removing of the 4-2 schedule are all part of a “divide and conquer” effort being undertaken, and so far successfully I might add, by the City.

As of now you’re going at each other about the 4-2 vs. 6-3 vs. current schedule like kindergartners fighting over their Halloween candy. Next there will be some arguing we should take some furlough days to avoid layoffs or other cuts and after that there will be those arguing to leave the aldermen alone because that’s their clout.

Congratulations all, you are playing right into Shortshank’s hand.

Please JOHN KASS, someone in the media help us. The taxpayers need to be educated in the retaliatory tactics of the city. These unfair labor reprisals are the direct result of an administration attempting to scapegoat the first responders for the incompentance of the Daley Regime. If Daley gets his way it can only lead to increased suffering from taxpayers.

Daley realizes he is under tremendous scrutiny over raiding the rainy day fund to fix his budget. It is a triple edge sword, waste of money on olympics/Michael Reese, foolishly leasing the parking meters and inability to maintain a budget yet giving himself and the aldermen 6% raises. He has to shift the focus on someone else and who better than the police! We have been destroyed by the media since Abatte so they are more than willing to participate. It is no coincidence that Daley and the alderclowns proposed 24 unpaid furlo days, thats 10% of our salary boys and girls, one day per pay period. The city council then states that they won't ratify any double digit raise for us. Of course they can't do anything about either situation, they cannot impose furlo days nor can they not ratify an arbitrators findings. The public does not know this and will continue to believe that we are all fat selfish pigs. It is no coincidence that the release of the news story that police complaints are up 18% and that the police board only fires 37% of those recommended. Thatis being manipulated to make us look like we are out of control, untouchable and undeserving of a raise. SCC proposes a referendum to reduce the number of aldermen and all of a sudden our 4-2 schedule is slammed down in revenge. Very stupid on the city's behalf because productivity would have increased and complaints would decreased. We have been under seige and outright attacked over the past 30 months, with the last twenty months getting progressively worse. We are at about the half way point of our suffering, but not at the peak. The city will draw blood from us whether it be furlo days, layoffs, unpaid overtime or most likely suspension time. Look for what has already been an increase in recommendations of suspension time to double or triple and even less bosses refusing to sign off on it. The city will get its unpaid furlo days from us one way or another. The city has been lucky this year, weather and poor shooting have reduced the homicide rate, but the agg batts are still up. Look for a sharp increase next year. In other words, strap in boys and girls we are still in for a long rough ride before things get better.

2. The plan doesnt take effect utill 2013. That date ring a bell to you retirees? Has this been planed under the table for years?

SCC.
I thought the petition drive was a ok idea. And what is ment by that is if we don't even come close to the number of signatures required it will be a huge knock on us. Daley and very other political hack will laugh. I hope that is not the case. But where there may be failure (Meaning I DO hope this works but this might be or could be the start of something else) another idea may succeed.

We all have been talking about he poor judges we have in Crook County. So if we are able to gather at least 100,000 signatures don't you think we could target some judges that are up for retention? I do believe that in order to stay a judge they have to get 62% i think of the vote. If we can get these people to actually make the effort to vote NO on them and get even (1) Judge voted out I think it would be a major WIN. Further say even if everyone of the 100,000 dontes $1.00 USC we could even put out some televison ads or billords against these judges. Its not a bad idea I think. I really think we need more talk about trying to do this. Thanks for your time

The district-level vehicle requirements of the schedule are the problem. Case in point: 018 has 12+ dedicated cars sitting unused in the lot for 15 hours a day because of the overlapping coverage required between 3rd and 1st watches. Once the 3rd watch beat cars check off, their 12+ cars sit unused in the lot for 5 hours until 2nd watch comes out to play. The start times weren't set at the district level but at 35th street, based on peak dispatch call volumes. Eliminating the R cars and the goofy 3rd-1st watch overlap would make sense and that's the problem. It's too logical and these fools obviously wanted this to fail from the word go.

If Daley gets his way it can only lead to increased suffering from taxpayers.

# 1 - Quit whining you big baby and grow some testicles!

# 2 - Leave the media out of this. They are not your friend!

# 3 - We're cops. We don't refer to ourselves as first responders.

# 4 - The taxpayers don't need to be educated about shit! They just want to be safe. they don't care how or why or who!

Just proves that FOP is a useless organization. Remember, they patted themselves on the back and said, "after 12 years of fighting for our members we have finally gotten rid of the six day week". They were so proud of themselves. To bad they didn't have anything in writing before they started thumping their chests. These are the people who are negotiating our contract, so basically we're fucked.

8:00:00 was right. It was a political move the whole time. We jumped on the 4/2 schedule and trusted Weis. Where were all the new cars going to come from when this was implemented city wide? They have to come up with a car for each beat car. for example 231/231R for the midnight cars. Where were the radios going to come from? It was a ploy the whole time. It got us excited, Daley proposed the furlough days, we rejected it, 4/2 is taken away, morale drops further. Daley played us and will continue to play us until our members/union wake up and stops trying to get a good job with the city/State's Attny office.

That's why I AND my wife have guns. And they're with us aaaallll the tiiiime.

The point of doing nothing is to get it into Daley's fucking head that he doesn't tell us what to do, the law does. When he serves up the police as bait for cash hunting scumbags, we quit and fade into the night, causing him loss of revenue and causing the citizens of this city to get so pissed off at the ROOT CAUSE of the shutdown that THEY THEMSELVES rise up against his ass and see what a shitbag he is for themselves.

Then THEY help US rout the great fuckhead Daley out of this city on a rail, and hopefully to prison where he belongs. Then, and only then shall we take up arms against the horde for the sake of the citizens that have shown us the the job they want us to do.

Power is the only thing that gets the attention and respect of mare dumbly. And diminishing his hand-picked city council will be the thing that gets his attention.

Oh shut the fuck up! It's NEVER a good time to deal with the likes of Daley. You cannot deal with this asshole on a level field. Look what he did to the unions that gave him concessions a mere 2 years ago. He decides he wants to re-negotiate their contract now and take even MORE away from them.

Daley (and much of the 50 bums) that are called aldermen are like school yard bullies; they will keep beating you up and taking your lunch money until you stand up to them and beat the crap out of them.

Or maybe, god forbid, your the clouted type who made a phone call to your mommy, daddy, or uncle who wears gold braid to get put on the tact team. WOW! Now you ARE the REAL POLICE!

You ask if I remember why I took this job in the first place? As a matter of fact I do and it wasn't to be treated like a day laborer.

I took this job to be a police officer.......not to be a babysitter, substitute parent, crossing guard, or punching bag.

I didn't take it to be called into the W/C's office to be lectured that my "productivity" is unacceptable and when I ask as to what are acceptable levels I get the company line of "If I told you that would mean we have quotas which we don't."

I took this job to enforce the laws of both the state of IL. and the city of Chicago equally to each person I encounter. Not to be called into the station and TOLD to non-suite a parking ticket because I just happen to write a certain aldercreatures daughter.

You talk about losing a spot or not getting a promotion. Well, now I know that you truely are a 2 year wonder because you haven't had to deal with losing your "spot" and having it given to some clouted moron who's only difference between myself and them is daddy is a Commander. You haven't studied your ass off for a promotional exam and then witness the one jag-off who begged to get into your study group and then not contribute anything or study, get promoted meritoriously.

When I was hired it was $0 per check, nothing, prescriptions also were -0-

Then it went to $1

My last prescription, yesterday, had a co-pay of $30.
