VRI Boycott Provokes Response

Just out from the Bureau of Patrol:
  • Days off Cancelled for All District Tact Teams, Area Saturation Teams, Gun Teams, Gang Enforcement Teams and Summer Mobile for the Labor Day weekend
  • Additionally, PEZ Zones will be covered by District personnel because the VRI numbers are so low
So the FOP point is being made - the Department is dangerously shorthanded and the only way to adequately man the streets is to cancel days off and force people to work.

Sounds like everyone is going to work OT, whether they want to or not?!

They were going to cancel 189's rdo's, but there are so few working computers on the 2nd fl that bringing extra people in for the weekend for buy busts would be pointless.

The rank and file of this department need to learn this fight has to be fought in the media, just like the war against us is being fought. This ain't your daddy's police department or your daddy's world anymore. We can't afford to be dinosaurs.

The purpose of this 'don't volunteer' initiative is to force the City to publicly admit we are too shorthanded to function properly. It isn't to please the union or antagonize the bosses.

The whole idea is to get the press coverage, to enlighten the average citizens, to highlight the shortsightedness of the mayor and the city council.

Wage the battle in a way the millennials can grasp. When DNA Info reports police are being FORCED to work overtime because there truly aren't enough officers to protect the city, when Huff Post broadcasts it all over the internet, when it's a 'trending story' on facebook, that's what they understand. When the City has to pay ridiculous amounts in overtime pay because they have to FORCE people to work, that's what gets headlines and people take note of.

Counteract Rahm's smirking soundbites. Start putting out some informational press releases. Get those good-news stories on YouTube. And put aside your individual issues with 'the union', 'the boss', the 'status quo', or whatever excuse you're using to NOT unite and get proactive. Stop marching in lockstep to whatever tune Rahm is playing and stepping off the damned cliff, like lemmings. It's time to take action, smart action, shrewd action, and UNANIMOUS action. If you keep waiting for someone else to do it, you've already surrendered your entire futures.

Now all the Tac Teams and special units that are being cancelled should start putting in the to-froms to go back to the watch. the city will not be able to cancel days off with out violating the contract with out tac teams and special units. The city has been able to violate the contract for the past 25 years since I have been on the job simply because all the tac teams and special units allow the city to violate the contract because all of these units are volunteer spots. Lets go boys and girls lets show the city we can stand together. Everyone on a tac team and special unit should request to be assigned back to the districts asap.

In reality, we as a department/Union can not stick together as a group for 1 weekend . There are several coppers working OT during Labor Day weekend in multiple districts ( 004,014, 016,024-to name a few) without any regards to us as a group but only to indulge in blood money that will eventually rear its ugly head in their lives. Not an FOP fan, but really just pass up 1 freaking OT opportunity in hopes that our manpower shortage/safety issues come to the Forefront other than anyone that is not pushing a beat car in patrol. Too difficult and shortsighted-as always. I wish you would post a list on that topic of those who just just can't resist increasing their tax bracket. Some guys have no shame and are actually proud of this.

The Sgt. read that you could volunteer to work your day off in the district during roll call. Don't get me wrong, I work VRI all the time but the union ASKED US TO REFRAIN from working overtime for one week. I can do that. Scabs, you are disgusting, you can't even control yourself for two days off. 016 was in a rap again tonight for probably 7 or 8 hours. It is dangerous and we need to stick together to let the politicians know we're not their dog that they can abuse any time they want.

Me, I'm going to enjoy my days off! I wish I could manage to do so every week, but I need the cash. But, every time the union says enjoy your days off, I'm going to.

I just want to say to all those who chose to finally stick together, THANK YOU! I'm sorry for all those who had their day off cancelled but if we could really start to stick together more often maybe the department will finally see we are sick of their shit. For those of you who still signed up....shame on you. They asked for just one weekend. They didn't ask you to take a day off without pay like the teachers did when they walked out. They didn't say don't sign up for a side job OUTSIDE the department. They simply asked for ONE WEEKEND of solidarity.

Adequately man the streets? They could cancel everyone's days off and the streets still wouldn't be adequately manned. I hope none of these fine officers who are having their days off canceled get sick and can't make it in to work. That would be terrible. A quick note to anyone experiencing a little blue flu on labor day weekend: they will be doing medical checks, so make sure your dumb ass is home when they come knocking.

If didn't put in for VRI during Labor day weekend, so they attempted to punish me by not giving me any for the month of September. My partner who has 5 years has many days of VRI and she has less activity and seniority than I have.:..can't rat my partner out though! Besides I'll make it up with supplemental. Point being ...we really got under their skin with this one. If you call special events you' are going to get nothing but attitude. The manpower is too low and that goes for P.Os, Detectives, ET's and Sgt's.

These morons are making six-figure plus salaries and want us to boycott the extra pay, I say no way. We have no solidarity in this department. Coppers fucking over coppers constantly, with no care. Laying down on jobs, not backing up fellow officers on calls, the special people always getting early ducks and the preferred spots. No sharing of special phone calls,and a rigged promotional system that only benefits the clouted. Hell most coppers on this job don't even greet each other passing and I'm expected to take a pass to support this dysfunctional and racist department, I say hell no. I welcome any moron to talk that scab shit, so put my name on your lists and I'll collect an extra fat check and some chevron's ... Hundreds of us will be working the overtime so print your lists.

I'm a Tact Sgt. I always get two VRI days a month. I didn't put in for VRI over the Labor Day weekend. The district handed out a notice from the Chiefs office saying anybody who wanted to work their days off over the weekend could do so. My team along with myself did not volunteer. I figured they would cancel days off. Thats okay I will work my RDO's, after they are canceled. I will give my team stict orders to bring in zero activity or face my wrath. Should everyone act the way I do we could take the department back from the politicians. We could make Rham and his minions tremble from us instead of small group of loudmouth protesters.

Actually - it's triple time when RDO is cancelled on a holiday; however - you have no choice in time versus money. You receive 20 hours comp time, and an additional 4 hours time or cash.

Is this Rahm, one of his minions or someone from the predictive analysis unit writing this shit? Mike Shields and Mike Shields alone cost every union member their retro for overtime in the first year of the contract. If you want someone to pay for this intentional action by Mike Shields at election time this spring remember Dan Gorman, Dean Angelo,Jr, Bill Burns, Danny Trevino, Tim Murphy, Dan Stover, Mike Shields, Dan Shields,AL Jaglowski, John Lipka, Dennis Dougherty, Fernando Flores, Rich King, Michael Underwood, I know these trustees for sure voted to allow Shields to pick his own committee of his friends to find him not guilty of screwing every PO and detective out of retroactive pay for all overtime in the first year of the contract. Shields then destroyed the tape of the meeting even though he promised to preserve it and send a copy to the state lodge.

"In less than two short years, I'll have twenty years on the cpd and I'm working all the overtime I can get so fuck the fop. Our inept union has fuck up my retro-active pay of overtime on the first year of our current contract."

Guess what dumbass...A P.O. filed a lawsuit regarding this a while back. EVERYONE IN THE DEPARTMENT IS GOING TO BE PAID FOR THAT FIRST YEAR YOU ARE REFERRING TO. That's right. You heard me. Everyone is getting paid for that O.T. If you took your ignorant self serving head out of your ass long enough you might have seen the letter about it from the F.O.P. Now Dean's letter may have been a little confusing because he was EMBARRASSED by the fact that he and the City were caught together in this little scheme. He tried to tell everyone that it was "an obscure labor law". because he, the F.O.P negotiating board members, and our labor attorney all missed this "obscure law". but since you had your asshat on let me fill you in. THE CITY HAS TO PAY US. EVEN IF THE GOOD 'OL BOYS DOWN ON WASHINGTON ST AGREED TO SCREW US OUT OF THAT MONEY. The City has no leg to stand on. So thanks again for sticking together.

If you welcome the scab talk and don't care about your name being on a list, why not just put your name on your post? You, along with many others, don't have the slightest clue what this is all about. It's not about supporting the FOP. It's about showing that we're understaffed and that manpower issues are creating a huge safety issue for all officers. Your idiotic rant and excuses mean only one thing: you're a moron. Please work VRI and please get jammed up for some stupid shit when you could've been home enjoying your day off. I just hope you don't get hurt or killed, which is exactly the risk we're all taking when we go to work, exponentially more risky with the current manpower. Enjoy your money and your selfish little bitch attitude. I'm sure you're one of the worst offenders of all the shit you pointed out that's wrong with this department. Stay safe, dumbshit. I honestly hope you get yourself stripped while working your day off. Maybe then you'd get it. Probably not. Maybe you'll call for backup and no one will show up because there aren't enough cars to actually back you up. You still wouldn't get it.

Actually pull ALL the rosters from anyone who has EVER worked VRI, those are the REAL scabs. Many of us have been saying NOT to work VRI since the beginning. Sounds like the pot calling the kettle black.

I don't know if your a scab but you are an immature self centered cry baby who hopefully will get seriously jammed up working your off day.

Everytime I consider coming back to the watch, I hear a story from someone on the watch about a guy they had to work with, or I work vri and get stuck with some clown.

In reality, we as a department/Union can not stick together as a group for 1 weekend . There are several coppers working OT during Labor Day weekend in multiple districts ( 004,014, 016,024-to name a few) without any regards to us as a group but only to indulge in blood money that will eventually rear its ugly head in their lives. Not an FOP fan, but really just pass up 1 freaking OT opportunity in hopes that our manpower shortage/safety issues come to the Forefront other than anyone that is not pushing a beat car in patrol.

We don't have a union. We have a bargaining unit. They helped craft a contract that played upon division to get an up vote. Watch seniority for furlough selection....very union! But the majority wanted retro. At any cost. The FOP wants more union dues. They want more hiring. The membership wants VRI. More hires equals less VRI. The FOP never gets in front of any of the critical incidents that have occurred. Most of the people on here represent the typical cop. Most voted YES for the contract. Most never did much before the earthquake hit. Many talk unity while enjoying all that their clout gives them. So amuse yourselves with your bravado, but do leave people who want to earn money alone.

In less than two short years, I'll have twenty years on the cpd and I'm working all the overtime I can get so fuck the fop. Our inept union has fuck up my retro-active pay of overtime on the first year of our current contract. These morons are making six-figure plus salaries and want us to boycott the extra pay, I say no way. We have no solidarity in this department. Coppers fucking over coppers constantly, with no care. Laying down on jobs, not backing up fellow officers on calls, the special people always getting early ducks and the preferred spots. No sharing of special phone calls,and a rigged promotional system that only benefits the clouted. Hell most coppers on this job don't even greet each other passing and I'm expected to take a pass to support this dysfunctional and racist department, I say hell no. I welcome any moron to talk that scab shit, so put my name on your lists and I'll collect an extra fat check and some chevron's ... Hundreds of us will be working the overtime so print your lists. Any attempt to revoke membership= big fat check and I love working 99 on the days, so I'm not bothered with anyone refusing to work with me.....Lol

I hear both sides, I lost money not doing vri/volunteering, hell I could have cashed in. I'm Currently on furloh, just had a baby. wife is not working, she just had surgery a few days ago. Tenants moved mid month so had to do some repairs before the new tenants move in, Bills to pay. Kinda kicking myself for not doing it. I hear it's a way to show cpd that we're short. But when we do get the people, will vri and ot still be there like it is today? or are we going to lose in on the easy money as well while fop continues to get there 6 figures. Could have made done a lot of things with that money for the family.

Damn, that seems tough. I'm sorry. I hope things pick up for you. I wouldn't hold it against someone like you for working it. Take care of your family first. If I had a family to support I would do it for them. Sorry, just being honest.

Accomplished nothing! Guys who wanted to earn a little extra but choose not to work VRI because of peer pressure are out the extra money. Guys who were RDO and didn't plan on working are now forced to work their RDO. You knew this would happen. what the fuck good was this? To prove we are short staffed? Dean could go to the media. Hold a press conference. Have factual data/numbers of current active members and retirements per month/year. Compare to new hires for the year. Explain how police on first watch are not distributed fairly throughout the city. People can understand numbers put in front of them. Maybe the public would respond to that. This idea of don't work VRI was stupid.

I stand by an earlier opinion. This action doesn't unite us it divides us. There are approximately 150 coppers needed a day, so for a three day action, 450 of us are asked to stand down. More than half the membership doesn't get to work VRI, so asking them not to volunteer doesn't change anything for them. So who loses and who benefits? Who sacrifices anything, be it the loss of income or the loss of their day off? What do you say to those who either lose the extra money or lose the day off?

And the answer? Bitterness towards the tact people for being 'stupid' enough to take the job that causes their day off to be cancelled. That's divisiveness....not caring about your fellow FOP member because it doesn't effect you. The same mentality that allows some to lay down on a job for an extraordinary amount of time while others pick up the slack. The same mentality that goes into something as simple as putting gas in the car before they turn it in, or should say, NOT putting gas in the car. A few take the hit and the many catcall from the sidelines.

Show me something that everyone can join in on. Show me something that a seasoned veteran as well as a PPO can take part in. Until then this is nothing more than bullshit.

Guess what dumbass...A P.O. filed a lawsuit regarding this a while back. EVERYONE IN THE DEPARTMENT IS GOING TO BE PAID FOR THAT FIRST YEAR YOU ARE REFERRING TO. That's right. You heard me. Everyone is getting paid for that O.T. If you took your ignorant self serving head out of your ass long enough you might have seen the letter about it from the F.O.P. Now Dean's letter may have been a little confusing because he was EMBARRASSED by the fact that he and the City were caught together in this little scheme. He tried to tell everyone that it was "an obscure labor law". because he, the F.O.P negotiating board members, and our labor attorney all missed this "obscure law". but since you had your asshat on let me fill you in. THE CITY HAS TO PAY US. EVEN IF THE GOOD 'OL BOYS DOWN ON WASHINGTON ST AGREED TO SCREW US OUT OF THAT MONEY. The City has no leg to stand on. So thanks again for sticking together.

We're short of help and in the areas where there is lower crime, we are dangerously short of help. That needs to be our focus. It'll take the city years to correct the manpower shortage, VRI isn't going anywhere unless they just cancel it because of cost. The northside of the city has been stripped of manpower. The district I work in is at 50% of the manpower of 15 years ago. We were well over 300 PO's, now, well under 200. They shipped some out to these units using reverse seniority and made it worse. I'm glad I don't live in 016, I'd be madder than hell about the manpower shortage up there. It's fucking dangerous. 2 armed robberies in an hours time. No cars available for hours at a time.

With over 26 hrs on and over 18 as a supervisor I'm not working OT Labor Day weekend. I think it's good to send a message to the city but doesn't go far enough. What's needed is real leadership with the backbone to stand up, state the facts and then show the city that there is in fact a demonstrable result of thier actions against the officers of the CPD . I'm not promoting any type of work stoppage, I'm am suggesting that the FOP and the PBPA came up with a plan to empasize to the public the real harm that Rham and his hacks have done.

Why? Out of the 12 OR SO that work it only 4 people actually do the work on the computers.

Too many people pretending to be "undercover" and cant possibly do any police work unless it's to do surveillance ONLY.

Glad those days are behind me but please dont attempt to imply this unit has changed any. Same thing different days.

Couldn't agree more. Was a buy person for years there and that's when we had to be multi-demensinal ( buy,enf, surv). I've seen first hand some of the "undercovers" who do nothing other than surveillance. Boy 189 has become a watered down unit full of cry babies. I havent seen a large seizure of narcotics in some time. Guess buy busting 2 baggers and grabbing the person who "directed" them to the dealer has taken all their time up.

Who said it was a solely a rental property? It's a house with a 2nd fl attachment that i chose to rent out because it pays half the mortgage. I don't need pity, just don't understand what's the point of it? There's nothing in it for me. I'm sure they're other people out there in a worse situation, no one give two shits about them because it's not them. If you don't need it then don't work it. Simple. I chose not to work even though I could have probably worked all 4 days because I wanted to be a team player and I can manage without it. But my kids could have used the money, why take money away from them? Seeing the posts people had written, I would totally choose to work if I had to do it all over again. Most of the people probably bitching are those who are those who weren't going to work it regardless if the fop requested for people not to.

if you cant live without vri then you should have married a wife that works or not had a baby if you can't afford it.. Live within your means don't try and look for sympathy, everybody has issues and everyone makes their own life choices.

Yea, another reason I wished I took all 4 days. Because the wife's surgery was totally planned. GTFOH. Don't ding people who choose to work, they all make their own life choices.

Don't you think they just blinked because we DID stick together by not signing up to work VRI, and don't think peer pressure didn't have anything to do with it. There are always going to be a certain number of suckholes in the ranks who will have their noses up the managements ass, who will work VRI no matter what. Those are the ones who have to be educated about what this is all about. We should now stick together over pension, healthcare, and new contract. Baby steps first.

This should not be for only one weekend. The city needs to fund the pension as ordered and put in the money that was not funded and the money that was stolen and lost because of illegal political actions. Then work all the VRI you want.

U sound like a guy with a few years on but ended up in a nice district but are at the bottom of the pile when it comes to seniority and got sent to summer mobile B.S reverse seniority and are now pissed cuz of your days off getting cancelled ! Sorry but i have zero sympathy for you , been plenty of openings in shitty districts the past few months but u chose to stay put with always the threat of something like that happening ! I've had chances of going to a better spot but with only a few years on the seniority matters more to me !I'll take dealing with the extra bullshit domestic report to know i can't get screwed with !

Actually... a$$ hat it's the opposite! If you used your brain instead of your mouth you would understand that the reverse was a little more in depth then just the "guy with just a few years on" and "in a nice district". Unlike you I am sure, I did my bones in "shitty districts" and now was able to move on to other things. Unfortunately being lowest in sonority in an area where the average is 20+ years makes drawing the short straw for me more likely then not, especially when others with less time had a summer baby furlough because all they could get was a full 1 or 2 furlough. So before you run your"I work in a shitty district so I am the real police" learn how $hit works THEN SPEAK SOMETHING WITH SUBSTANCE AND TRUTH. Until then keep hiding in the hole in you "shitty district"

This is the first group to not pay their dues. We all need to be United.

VRI is a fix for a shortage of police. A shortage of police is adding to a shortage of pension $$. Hope you invest all of yourVRI because 20 yrs down the road you will need it! And none of you better complain.

Dumb asshole said.......The lawsuit you are talking about only concerns FLSA overtime not all the overtime you worked so Shields and his minions above still fucked us out of our overtime in the first year of the contract asshat.

You are wrong Mr know it all. There is a completely different lawsuit. It is for all of your overtime. But like so many other misinformed coppers that think they know everything-you are wrong. The law states that the City must pay the retroactive pay on ALL money earned. Both base and overtime. If you would like like to dispute this further we can. I will post the lawsuit and the law that shows the city will pay. Then you can apologize if you are man enough to admit when you are wrong.

FOP divides us again. Lot of rumors and back stabbing going on. Instead of being supportive and caring we choose to be divided and conquered. Too many spineless folks. Too many clickish pricks who have never been in any sort of group setting. As for the labor day weekend is concerned the FOP failed to inform us the actual goal of the protest. What is the point? That we stand united? Animosity jealousy cronyism false rumors and hate are what I see. I miss the old timers who told it like it was. The ones who used to share their wealth of knowledge and wisdom over a few beers. Hell they even gave marriage counseling and financial planning. Guess everything changes. Not necessarily for the better. Be safe everyone.

I have no clout and a vet. anybody calls me a scab and I will tell you to go f-ck yourself, the people running their mouths about this are you clouted j-goffs from the 19th ward really want to boycott why don't you give up your clouted spot in the unit?

8/29/2016 01:24:00 PM

Hi Mr. Grouchy. I'm not in a unit and I don't know where the 19th ward is. I have no clout. I'm not working vri or any overtime initiative on labor day weekend. YOU ARE A SCAB AND A ONE-WAY PIECE OF SHIT. Now you can tell me to go fuck myself. Oh wait... no you can't. You forgot to tell us how to find you to call you a scab. All you tough talkers with your "I'm working it and I don't care who knows it" bullshit never leave any clue as to who you are. I wonder why that is. Pussy. Enjoy your money and I hope you lose your pension for something you do when you should be home enjoying your days off.

QUIT WORKING VRI and CTA. You are screwing all of us in the long run. The city must be forced to hire more police!

You're such a fucking jagoff that the have never worked overtime in your career(wow) and you sign up the one day your union asks you not to. If you have somehow managed to never work OT in 15 years of being on the street, than all you've been doing is hiding. 15 years of pushing YOUR work on to other people. I bet your kids think you're a complete jagoff too.

To the author A big FAT FU!!! I learned early on when I was walking around w a red ID card that the union doesn't give a fuck about anyone and this department just wants to make an example out of you. I paid out of pocket for my lawyer fuck the union who was of no help. Fuck this deptarment I have my job which I fought for, so a big fuck you to you. I don't work OT bcuz my family was there for me, I owe them no one else. This department can't make you write tickets read your contract and learn it.

8/29/2016 10:34:00 PM

So you're telling me you never worked OT in your career but you somehow ended up in call back? OK. You're either galacticly stupid or lying. You only owe your family, so you work on a holiday weekend. Got it, you are a jagoff, your kids appreciate you working.

Why are Police Officers assigned to Office work ?
Front Desk and Lock Up Keepers should be the only inside assignments for Chicago Police Department .

Well aside from the mandatory one day off cancelled ....the guys in the unit ate up the "optional" additional overtime offered on the other days surrounding the Labor Day weekend. Unbelievable. I am truly disappointed in them. I believed in our unity cause to show how short the department is but I am embarrassed to say most of them didn't care. I know I'm naive to have thought in a blue cause. Another note...I understand everyone's point of view but for those who are very disgruntled and only self serving please quit now. I would hate for a friend or family member be served by you! SMH!

Get over it I joined this dept late in life and My kids if you must know are now in college. Many of you never held any other job prior to this and that's your choice. Like it has been mine to not work ot you learn how to write reports and always box 2. If by chance you get notified guess what one can always get out of those. Several old timers taught me the right way. Thank you to all those retired coppers. Medical is the best thing this department has to offer and callback a sweet unit. Yes I will be working and yes I will have enough time to enjoy my evening with my family because I made it on days the commute sucks but it is what it is. Stop by the district anytime or over the weekend, I need hours on the books as I have none. Thanks for caring

Never worked Ot for this dept in 15 yrs and my time cards will reflect that, this time around I signed up but only to piss all those MF's already hating. I hear the stories I have too many bills, or I need money bcuz the wife wants this or I want that, really???? I have never missed my kids bday, play, sporting event, out of state travel games not one. I save my pd's & bfd's roll them over and use them for my kids. All these MF's talking shit I feel sorry for every single one of them. I don't have a second job my job are my kids. No court for me no tickets in years no one can order you to write tickets please show me in the contract or give me something in writing. Call it what you want. I go in do my tour go home. Worked all three watches not in a unit or front office or hidden somewhere. Scab never!!! I have hours on the books from holidays but use them up as I need them. Signed one time scab!
