Arbitration Decision Today (UPDATE)

And an interesting admission from the people who keep track of this stuff:
  • After going nearly three years without a contract, Chicago police officers expect to learn Friday how much of a raise they’ll get when an arbitrator releases his decision.

    Officials with both Mayor Richard Daley’s administration and the Fraternal Order of Police said they expect to receive the decision by 8 a.m. Friday. Both sides said they plan to brief reporters later in the day.

    Police have been working without a contract since the end of June 2007. The matter went to an independent arbitrator last year after negotiations broke down.

    Although the arbitration technically only applies to rank-and-file officers, lieutenants and captains will get the same raise because of clauses in their recently-approved contracts.

    Police also are expected to get back pay as part of the decision. City Hall has set aside $70 million to cover the costs of the decision and a similar one expected for the city’s firefighters, said Laurence Msall, president of the Civic Federation, a government budget watchdog.
$70 million set aside for costs. Seems like some of the 'Lympic money was set aside after all. Anyone know what the interest is on a $70 million Certificate of Deposit?

We're going to try to keep the readership informed as the day goes on. Obviously, the percentages are going to be the biggest news. Here's a couple of links that might help out:
After it's all said and done, the only question remaining is when does the City Council approve it? Or whether or not they try to delay implementation.

We imagine they'll forgo consideration at the May meeting claiming Beale has to put his committee together and read the decision and get his marching orders from Shortshanks. That means June at the earliest for approval. Raises won't hit until 01 July, meaning the 16 July check. Retro by August? September? Last time the Arbitrator set a date by which check had to be issued or the City would have to start paying interest on monies held. We expect that might be in the decision and the City will take every one of those days to issue checks.

UPDATE: OFFICERS SCREWED. Again. And again.
  • Rank-and-file Chicago police officers will get a raise that is significantly less than the one Mayor Richard Daley pulled off the negotiating table last year under an arbitrator’s decision released this morning, a source familiar with the decision said.
  • The raises average 2 percent a year for five years. That's less than the 3.2 percent a year for five years that Mayor Richard Daley pulled off the negotiating table in March 2009. That offer had been on the table for a year, but the Fraternal Order of Police was trying to get more. FOP President Mark Donahue declined to comment, saying he would speak at a 3 p.m. news conference.
More later.

By the time this is posted, the arbitrator's decision should be announced.

It sucks to have to go through this every fucking contract.

And now Beale to take over the police & fire committee.

Alderman Beale before you start throwing stones, you better put your facts straight, but oh, wait! You are a politician and you don't know how to do that.

Here are my "facts" that I believe:

THERE ARE TOO MANY ALDERMAN!!!! You want to save the city money, Beale? Then eliminate half of the city council, their offices, staff and slush funds. The citizens would be well served by 25 alderman!

Another fact, tell you constituents how much you make for your PART-TIME job. Are you one of the $103,000.00 guys or a $110,000.00 PART-TIMER. This fact puts your PART-TIME salary above that of every FULL-TIME police officer,
and sergeant.

Here's a third fact for you, the vast majority of us in our real estate taxes contribute a sizable portion to the city coffers and consequently, to your PART-TIME salary of over $100,000.00.

Final fact, watch for the police and fire to meet your every move that works against us one level higher then you.

As for the arbitrator's decision, I hope there is a great deal of good news in it. The rank-and-file had had it with the politics of this process and a I don't thing a bad decision would be a good omen.

Isn't there a provision in the contract on how many days they have to pay you or there is interest? I know there is one in the contract that the CFD has with the city. I hope you guys don't get screwed because we all deserve to get at least what all other city employees got if not better.

Well this will decide wether I write any parkers or movers for teh rest of my career. If the city is not willing to pay me and my fellow officers for their service, then not one person should give the city any revenue. Remember locking up joe for a bag of weed doesnt generate anything , parker movers, impounds do. So to everyone out there if they dont give you 200 to 300 extra a onth thenask yourself why are you giving them 500 per impound. For some peolpe it might be wortht to stay opn their units, thinking that they someday get a promotion. Remember clout rulles everything, you can be the baddest mother fucker out there and it wont mean shit.

Chicago’s rank and file police officers would get a 6.5 retroactive pay raise dating back to July 2007 and 3.5 percent going forward to 2012, under a contract handed down Friday by an independent arbitrator. The arbitration ruling was viewed as a “huge win” for the city and Chicago taxpayers — and a disappointment for police officers waiting three years for a new contract.

The Sun-Times as of 1000 hours.

The FOP did not have this as of the same time. Someone leaked this to the scum times

To all the morons that didnt think 16 percent was enough this is what you get. Who wouldnt want to get more? But the point is, is that it wasnt realistic. Now we end up with a raise that isnt even equal to cost of living. So we technically didnt even get a raise we lost money. Next time dont be so worried about a stupid retro check and getting an unrealistically high raise. Look at the big picture and think for once.

A sincere Thank You for putting in all of the long hours the last few years. Although many will be calling for your heads, there are some out here who support who appreciate what you do.

TO THOSE WHO HAVE NOW DECIDED TO RETIRE...
It was a pleasure working with you all, enjoy your retirement.

TO FELLOW OFFICERS.....
Look at the big picture, we got 10%this contract, not entirely the city wanted. Last contract the city won on discipline, but we won on the pay raise. I don'd think we did that bad on the contract before
either. This raise (although we did not get what we wanted) is a middle of the road decision by the arbitrator.

Just make up the difference by making a late arrest-and insist the W.C. sign the O.T. slip-do not let them tell you they will "get you out of here early on your friday" Fill up your court with arrests on signed complaints, and doing one TVB a month (no testifying).

And stay off the COMMENTS section of the local media outlets, you know they are all going to be negative so dont put yourself thru the stress

Paying police less will save city taxpayers money during a recession-driven budget crunch, so the arbitrator's ruling represents a win for City Hall.

Today, Daley told police officers to blame their union representatives.

"I ask all the police officials, all their families, 'Don't blame me,' " Daley said, turning toward the police on duty at O'Hare International Airport, where the mayor spoke at an unrelated event. "It was not me. It was your union officials that decided that. Because like anything else, I have to be the whipping boy on a lot of issues. But I stood tall, 16 percent, and if I agreed I would have to pay 16 percent. I would have to find that. I would have to find that. That's my responsibility. That's not them."

Daley told police officers to blame their union representatives. That means you Mark, and the rest of the flop clowns. You should have checked with the members and taken his original offer. Thanks for a great job. I'll save you boys and girls the suspense of Mark's response to a pathetic raise. He'll say "Don't blame me guys, I got you people the 4 and 2 schedule." Another area he never consulted with union paying members on. Marky is out next election, but remember this and vote the rest out. This is change we need.

Ok, all you hard-chargers, how do you like them apples? All you suckholes that bent over backwards to keep those parker, mover and vehicle impound indexes up to keep your "mission car" or your "named offender/warrant car" have hopefully learned the hard lesson that the old-timers were trying to school you about. Does "The Captain's gonna bounce us off our car if we don't give him some tickets" sound familiar?

I hope you fools with the unquenchable thirst for the 35th Street Koolaid FINALLY start to see the reality involved in this game.

It was quoted that the city had $70 million on ice (collecting interest) in anticipation of paying out huge retroactive pay. We all know the city has WAY more than that available for when the need arises. Only now that need is substantially less because we had it rammed up our poopers yet again.

And allow me to throw a bit more salt in this open wound: the non-working, welfare-collecting mopes that we deal with day in and day out have been getting their monthly tax-payer-funded stipends ON TIME, with increases commensurate with the cost of living. Yes, that's right, their checks increase year-to-year while we've had to wait 3 years to get a pittance that doesn't keep up with the cost of living in this hellhole of a city. Don't forget to factor in all the other freebies like subsidized housing, food programs, free medical coverage, etc, etc....

But don't fret, boys and girls. I have it from a VERY reliable source that Mayor Daley plans on giving all CPD and CFD employees a Christmas Bonus this year. We're looking at about $2,000-$2,500 each.

Now get back to those mean streets and write some parkers and impound some cars to show Richie D. just how appreciative you are.

Well at least they won't get the opportunity to botch the next round of negotiations.

Note to the next leadership group at FOP:

When you reject an offer calling it insulting, what you're going to want to do is get MORE than that which had been offered. It's a tricky concept, but skilled negotiators typically employ that strategy rather than the unconventional route the FOP took this time around. "That offer is an outrage! We won't settle for anything that's not significantly less than that!"

Donahue should have moved for arbitration as soon as possible. Had he done so, the arbitrator's decision would have come back in good (pre-Obama) economic times.

Today, Daley told police officers to blame their union representatives.

"I ask all the police officials, all their families, 'Don't blame me,' " Daley said, turning toward the police on duty at O'Hare International Airport, where the mayor spoke at an unrelated event. "It was not me. It was your union officials that decided that. Because like anything else, I have to be the whipping boy on a lot of issues. But I stood tall, 16 percent, and if I agreed I would have to pay 16 percent. I would have to find that. I would have to find that. That's my responsibility. That's not them."

The Mayor and the city council keep getting away with tons of backhanded stealing and the media focuses on bullshit.

Yes, you jackasses in the press, we are pissed off. This is not a department of Abate fuck-ups.

We the good cops have made our sacrifices to the city with using shitty equipment, run-down cars, verbal abuse by bosses AND citizens, paid higher and higher real estate taxes and sales taxes.

We have been asked to go out into the streets with less manpower jeopardizing our safety and ultimately losing the lives of a number of our own.

Sacrifices? You the Mayor, politicians and reverends want us to sacrifice?

We're done sacrificing.

This contract is a slap in the face to the thousand of cops who anonymously do a good job day in and day out.

I am already pissed about the continued and future responses to "suck it up and be thankful" we got what we got and that we have jobs.

Screw that! I'll trade my beat job for the mayor's or the aldermen's any day.

Enough of paying for these socialize handouts to those who bank on the welfare system. For you reverends who hate the police, read II Thes 3:10, "those who do not work, should not eat".

My salary subsidizes the corruption in City Hall and I have no control over it.

Well I have control over this: No activity and no proactive work.

Good luck to all of you who live in Chicago this summer. You will need it.

i will not do anything to generate any revenue for this city what so ever and I am not alone.

I have 5 years on the job and have quickly learned that it is better to do NOTHING than be a worker and get in trouble , or not even get the respect we deserve.

I am not alone. Alot of men and women who came on around the time I did feel the same. I can truly understand why officers with 15 to 20 yrs dont want to do shit.

This city is going to be in ruins in 10 yrs and we all have Mayoe daley and the rest of the theives to blame for that.

mayoe daley you have made my life difficult along with the rest of the crook county clan.

i have lost my house and my kids no longer can go to catholic school because of the tax increases and the fees that are out of control.

I once thought this was the greatest city in the country and boy how untrue that statement is today.

I wish nothing but heartache and ill will on all you political hack bastards. You will get yours. Not here but in the afterlife.

all you politicians may you all rot in hell because you deserve it.

The city continues to push their money problems onto the workers. Huberman and his staff will get huge raises. The alderthieves have their "expense accounts". Picardi and the other managers will get their 6 figures. Meantime the city workers are taking 24 days without pay with rumors that there is more coming. Now the police get ripped off. When will someone step up and run against this midget?...

No offense to midgets.

The raises average 2 percent a year for five years. That's less than the 3.2 percent a year for five years that Mayor Richard Daley pulled off the negotiating table in March 2009.

REMEMBER DALEY PULLED THE OFFER OFF THE TABLE. GARBAGE MEN AND GUYS THAT FILL POT HOLES MAKE MORE THEN US NOW. REMEMBER THAT...

Here's an idea. Let's flood the Mayor with phone calls and a march downtown, all in the hopes of urging the Mayor to boost moral and go above what the arbitrator decided. I think we could pull this off...BUT...the FOP cannot be the one to organize this!

The checks haven't been cut yet Mr. Mayor.
Do the right thing and you just might save this city from having another summer of pissed off cops tryin to make ends meet for their families.

Raw, with sand on the dipstick! But you guys should have jumped out of that IBEW local a long time ago. Your local represents oemc dispatchers, call takers .............................................................................. and some freaking fly by night non-oemc cable installers!

Buh-Bye Bella!

The FOP are simpletons playing at being negotiators. They have no frigging clue and are too greedy collections stipens, gratuities, trips and "seminars" to understand that we need PROFESSIONALS negotiating for us.

Just wait till Alderscum Beale takes away uniform and duty from us.

Thanks guys.

Nothing for the FTOs.

The union did not even argue for D2A pay as mentioned on the their web site.

Sad, very sad. Both the city and the union are equally at fault.

I am angry,burned out and financially drowning. This is a recipe for disaster and is the norm with the C.P.D. If anyone votes for ANY DEMOCRAT in Nov you are an imbecile. Our city Gov't is a criminal enterprise that has once again showed it is truly evil. This contract or lack of it,was a declaration of war.

Arbitrator basically looked at the economy and based decision on the NATIONAL cost of living.

NOT the State of Illinois or City of Shitcago cost of living. (Both of which are significantly higher than the national average!)

We get screwed AGAIN!

ANYONE THAT VOTES FOR THE CURRENT FOP ADMINISTRATION IN THE NEXT FOP ELECTION IS A FOOL!

Why did it take almost 3 years for the FOP and City Hall to sell out the Officers. They could have screwed the coppers in several days instead of 40 months.

Thank Daley and Donahue, remind me to vote for you assholes when the time comes.

Fran, I'd like to see a retraction and correction. We did NOT walk away from a proposed 16% increase.

Mayor Richard M. Daley ILLEGALLY ended negotiations and, in violation of Federal labor laws, pulled the City's offer from the table.

Unfortunately, FOP did not sue him for this action when they had the chance, so we get stuck with this 'raise', which doesn't even cover the cost of living increase.

If you're going to claim to be a reporter, you should at least report the TRUTH.

Actually...we never had a chance to actually Accept or Reject the 16.1% that Daley Offered...

Daley took it back before we ever got to financial negotiations...

The unions that Accepted it all were forced into Substantial Givebacks, some took Unpaid Furlough Days, some now have ONE Holiday a Year (Labor Day) and No others. The unions that refused givebacks lost members through layoffs.



IS OUR GLASS IS HALF FULL...?

We actually have not given anything back as a concession...and yet still received a meager raise.

Financial times are tough, other departments got Zero % raises or took Cuts.

We are behind NYPD but ahead of LAPD



And Yes I know Daley has the Money... Unfortunately my arms are not L o n g enough...

FOP needs new leadership. Everyone has to go. Bullock was telling everyone that we had to get at least 16 percent because that is what the city offered. They dont have a f-ing clue.

Don't spend your No Interest/ Retro Check, especially don't spend it in Chicago.

Hpefully you live within your means.

Better to up your Deferred Comp or oper or put in a Regular IRA and save on income taxes.

I'm getting about 2,600 in retro pay according to five frank. Earlier it was around 5,600 and some change. I tell you that if this is what I'm getting, I am doing this city in good. I am going to soak up as much OT as possible, talk every asa to notify me for everything bullshit, and make my arrest in the last hour.

I truly hope that some others step up and run for office in FOP. This current example of what is there now is just plain sorry

If you consider how bad of shape the country is in and the fact that most people who are lucky enough to have jobs have had to take unpaid days off or pay cuts we really are lucky to be getting anything.
Any word on the rest of the contract?
