Scam!

  • Former Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis walked out with a $76,308 check for accrued vacation days when he resigned his $310,000-a-year job on March 1 — a lump-sum payment for 64 unused days that’s raising eyebrows at City Hall.

    His former $168,438-a-year chief-of-staff Mike Masters left police headquarters with a check for $30,448. That’s the equivalent of 54 unused vacation days

Masters Masters Masters strikes again, along with J-Fled. And look at this:
  • Weis’ lump-sum payment — for the equivalent of 56.2 percent of his allotted total — raises eyebrows for several reasons.

    For one, he started work on Feb. 1, 2008, but still claimed 25 vacation days that year when he was eligible for none. The former superintendent also got 25 vacation days in both 2009 and 2010, even though civilian employees are only eligible for 13 vacation days.

And the biggest insult of all:
  • In June, 2010, after entering the final year of his three-year contract, Weis made a policy decision that increased his vacation payment even more.

    He changed the policy governing vacation carryover to allow “command staff members” including himself and Masters to carry up to 39 unused vacation days from one year to the next “when circumstances prohibited the use of current and prior year’s allotments.”

    [...] Copies of Weis’ so-called “command staff vacation carryover requests” obtained by the Chicago Sun-Times show that Weis and Masters took full advantage of the policy change—by carrying over 39 unused vacation days from 2010 to 2011.

    Both men used identical wording to justify the request: “Unable to use due to operational needs.”

So he (and Masters) directly benefited from a policy change decision that originated on J-Fled's own desk? There's a word for that, too. And we're pretty sure people have lost jobs, positions, promotions and maybe even gone to jail over decisions like that. This reeks of impropriety at the highest levels of government.

That must have been a helluva contract Shortshanks signed with J-Fled. Someone must have had Daley dead-bang on some dirty paper or a wiretap.

How would anyone know if Weis took any vacation time anyway? Who would he have given his slips to? Who did he answer to?

They should take a good look and see if Weis ever did take any days off besides his RDOs. And if he did take any vacation time and did not use his vacation days for it and just carried himself then that would indeed be theft.

Get this:
Weiss said he was willing to take a 20% pay cut in salary for a new contract. Said it was to help the city with its budget problem. Problem was that some alderman said he couldnt take a pay cut because it had to be 310. Of course he failed to mention that his contract was for two jobs. Remember the one he never performed.
He should have taken a 50% pay cut, returned half his salary and all his vacation days if he really cared. How convienent the media forgot the reality of his original contract.

Guess I am not terribly worked up about this if the time was actually earned and not used. The problem is that there should be a uniform policy. That said, there is also merit in forcing people to take vacations. There is a reason for them and it's not just to give employees time off.

Also sounds like something FOP should be looking into, doesn't it?

Please tell me that Shortshanks did something like this so we can ALL wave bye-bye to them as they make that loooooooong walk to the front door of whatever Federal Penetentiary they send them to upon conviction.....

Yes, it's disgraceful. Why should anyone here be surprised? Weren't Weis and 3M the same two assholes who attempted (unsuccessfully) to muscle in on our pension, until Mike Shields got wind of it and made a stink about it, which pushed them back out? Did anyone think those two assholes wouldn't make an end-run some other way to 'cash in' as other clouted
hacks have done thoughout Illinois?

There's probably nothing anyone can do (legally) concerning this theft by deception, orchestrated
by Weis (or more likely, by 3M himself, with some
assistance from City Hall). I just hope Preckwinkle gets wind of this and keeps a sharp eye on 3M
now that his clout has shifted him to yet another
high paying political job for which he has no qualifications or track record to justify him being
there.

These are the same cork soakers that would deny YOU time off for a major event and never allow time and a half compensation. We may be able to bank our Comp Time for use at a later date, but NEVER be able to work through a furlough and sell back that time. $76 K is about an average po's yearly salary and JFed could never be mistaken for a patrolman.
Now the Civic Federation urges RahmShanks to revamp the vacation time payouts. It's the Clouted Exempts that continue to screw over us and the City. Watch for limits on carryover BFD's & PD's if we will even be able to sell back anything next contract. As Leroy Martin once suggested, the city may even set a limit on the amount of comp time you can hold. Anything goes to save a buck and it won't apply to the bosses.
I'm glad in almost done with this Dept. For you newbys & short timers, make sure you can find a supplemental income or career for the future, its going to get a lot worse.

Looks like the reign of arrogance of John Doty may be coming to an end at the UCPD. A former member of the CPD who has worked at the UCPD for years with distinction sued the Dept. after being forced out by Doty. A deposition was recently held, and according to several people close to the pending litigation, (chief) Lynch, Doty and his lapdog Milt Owens looked very uncomfortable during an almost 8 hour deposition, especially when some of Doty's comments that had been documented were revealed. Here at the UCPD, we weren't surprised to hear this, as Doty's numerous nasty comments and excessive disciplinary actions against various UCPD employees have been talked about here for some time. an early legal decision on damages is eagerly awaited. This decision could open up a flood of new litigation by many others who have had to deal with the heavy hand of JD.

Our only consolation is that he did so poorly that no other department will touch him and he will take a $200,000 hit on the sale of his condo.

Yes, it's disgraceful. Why should anyone here be surprised? Weren't Weis and 3M the same two assholes who attempted (unsuccessfully) to muscle in on our pension, until Mike Shields got wind of it and made a stink about it, which pushed them back out? Did anyone think those two assholes wouldn't make an end-run some other way to 'cash in' as other clouted
hacks have done thoughout Illinois?

There's probably nothing anyone can do (legally) concerning this theft by deception, orchestrated
by Weis (or more likely, by 3M himself, with some
assistance from City Hall). I just hope Preckwinkle gets wind of this and keeps a sharp eye on 3M
now that his clout has shifted him to yet another
high paying political job for which he has no qualifications or track record to justify him being
there.

Our Chief of Staff was a sworn law enforcement officer. That is why he received duty availability and uniform allowance. Go check for yourself. If he wasn't sworn the Deputy of Finance would not have categorized him as such as allowed him to get that additional pay. Stop hating on him.

Getting rid of the system would require nothing short of firing EVERYONE, rewriting the rules and hiring anew. No one (NO ONE) from the past adminstration(s) could be considered for hiring, including you and I.

This comment made in defense of them keeping THEIR salary for a PART TIME JOB.

Let's keep this one on file so we can pull it out come contract time, because you KNOW these same politicians are gonna try and pass laws to fuck us out of this very thing.

Although, god forbid THEY'RE job is just so much more important to the public than police.

I'm going to sound like an asshat, but I'll say it anyway. Exempts are lucky if they get more than a week off at a time, and the higher the exempt the more likely they'll have little if no vacation. Saying that, I can see how he banked all his time and personally I don't have a problem with that.

It's part of the deal with the devil so to speak if you're an exempt. The rest of us get long furloughs, at least I do. I split and take four weeks for one and three for another. Exempts get a week at a time and when was the last time any superintendent had a long vacation?

Let him have it, and good riddance.

Unfortunately the people who are going to lose are current CPD members. The headline now reads Rahm vows to change vacation policy and it goes on to say that he has been advised to change the current system that allows for lump sum payments for unused vacation days.

This jagoff has accumulated 16 million dollars in his war chest and he wants everyone else to sacrafice.

He has already simply refused to honor raises granted to CPS membership and while some may snicker at that, what makes you think he won't try to do the same thing to us when it comes to our contractual benefits?

When CPS marches in protest, all union members should join them, because I promise you this is going to be our fight very, very, soon.

I met a CDOT inspector on a code violation today. He writes ANOVS on sidewalk damage from contractors, public way problems, digging in the street etc.

The City doesn't even give him a car. At all! He must use his own car for work, going from job to job answering complaints. The City gives him $130 a month for gas etc. He must also purchase extra insurance out of that to indemnify the City in case of accident.

He drives around for the city, in his car, he gets a few bucks for gas and must shoulder 100% of the liability and also pay to insure the city for any additional liability!

And he claims to write between $50,000.00 to $60,000.00 a month in citations.

Dont you dare defend these exempts. 80 percent of them don't do any work - they delegate their work to their subordinates and then take credit for it. They don't show up for work and don't have to explain to their subordinates where they are. They don't even get their hands dirty pumping gas or changing a tire or cleaning a windshield. They don't even spend 2 bucks tipping the car wash laborers.

Child boss dean the dream always takes 2 weeks at a time for vacation. Fat Fill took 2 weeks for vacation. Sure they get phone calls and report requests while off duty, but so do I, like many low level supervisors, and none of us make 6 figures.

Therefore, the City approved and condoned it.

Now, add in the Weis/Masters chicanery over 'banked' vacation time. Threaten a suit and you should get a very timely check because they DON'T want all the details of Weis' dirty deals to come to light.
