VRI Threats

So, anyone eager to work VRI?
  • I really screwed up and want to explain what happened. I have just under 6 years on the job. I put in to work for VRI Labor Day weekend forgetting about the FOP asking us not to work. I called to cancel the day I was given (never got one before). I was told I would be suspended from the program for 6 months and a CR issued. I was told the City implemented this policy for only the Labor Day weekend. Is this for real or a scare tactic. No one from FOP called me back yet. If I end up working I plan to donate all my earnings for the day to the Chaplains Ministry.
A six month suspension for canceling with more than adequate notice? Sounds like the city is changing the rules in the middle of the game. Again.

Is there a way to grieve this so officers can get suspended for the six months, grieve it, win it as an unfair labor practice, then get paid for six months of VRI (three days per month, 18 days at time-and-one-half) for all the days you should have gotten? That would be a bit over $5,000 for not even working a single day.

All my VRI request were not met and I registered no ealier then the 7th Sept. For some reason they assigned me on Labor day when I did not sign up for it. A LT told me they may have assigned it to me without calling me because of their shortage. Still have to hear back from Special events but I better not have any issues since I did not sign up. I'd make sure no one else is in this predicament.

A now long retired sergeant always used this line;
"What does the Order say" (referring to the General Order).
Translated; Read it and answer your own question.
Same for your FOP Contract.
Instead of social media, read GO's, SO's, DN's and Disclaimers concerning VSEP's, present your case and wait.
Sorry,
No shortcuts sonny boy. Don't rely on hearsay - study the Contract and the Agreement you signed up for.

Fool go on the medical. Forget donating money. It's not about money. We are trying to make a statement.

We are tired of getting pushed around. We are about to push back. This war on Police just woke up a bunch of sleeping giants. The more they push the more we need to stick together.

You're allowed to cancel 3 times within a certain period, given the fact you did so before 8 hours of the beginning of your tour. It's all Henny Penny. She wants total control. Tell her to stick it up her fat ass. She should have been fired a couple of times, but of course she gets promoted.

They have everyone lined up against us. The Sun-Times news paper says the police board is getting tough on cases. Look at the past few months the Police Board has been firing officers for stupid shit. They fired a guy for slapping his girlfriend. They fired to for being drunk and disorderly in other jurisdictions. They had another guy for not registering his vehicle plates to the station or his dwelling. Another guy for taking unauthorized medicine. And many other cases. They are firing people and they aren't playing.

We must have a march on city hall again. We must be careful and not risk getting caught up in this crap.

Shiiiit. I got 17 years on the job and have not worked VRI one single time. For shits and giggles I will put in for it. I have zero activity currently so it will be interesting to see how desperate they are for that weekend. If I get it, I'll either give them an advance notice that I changed my mind, or I'll just cancel at the last minute.

I'm calling BS on this whole comment. First off, unfortunately several short-sighted assholes with upwards of 25 years have put in for that weekend and gotten it, thanks Jagoffs and GFY with the"I've got bills", "others put in", etc and if you have a pet parakeet F him too in the words of Jack Savage. Secondly, as stated, it's a clear, unpublished change in policy that even Donny boy O'Neill would know would end very costly for the department. This is nothing more than some dick wad who put in for it, probably with over 20 years on, laying out his arguments for when he has to face his brothers and sisters that he screwed over whining, "I put in by accident and I heard they were going to suspend everyone so I couldn't cancel".
Hey FOP, how about borrowing that big inflatable rat several unions use at job sites and getting busloads lined up to be at some of the reporting places over the weekend so we can all see the scabs who think they're more important than us staying together? Video their grand entrances and exits too and post it for all to see.

I have already heard more than a few officers say "f-ck that shit i wants my money", so i hope to god someone can print out the lists of people that work VRI or any other overtime on labor day weekend to show what scab rats that they are.. Can't miss one fucking day or your whole financial livelihood will be in shambles? If you miss one day your gonna be in bankruptcy court? You wonder why the city, lawyers, ASA's, mayors, media, etc treat us like shit? cause we can't stick together on anything!

Not surprised the city would pull something like that. From the looks of it there is about 30 POs assigned for each day that weekend. If true, they all have the same problem you do.

What would the CR be for?

I'm so happy we could all stick together/unite for three days out of the year. /sarcasm

Anybody have a wedding our other event scheduled for that weekend to invite this kid to. Cancel for the invitation, take the 6 mos. and CR. then grieve as suggested earlier. If this is the first time you got VRI you probably weren't getting any days for the next 6 months anyway.

On a side note, never ever give CU in lieu of a day off for a suspension.

Time and a half based on seniority was something only dreamed of 30 years ago. Now we have it and those without the time or inclination to work VRI are vilifying those who want to earn the money. We have met the enemy and it is us.

To the 316am post. I too actually forgot and was doing two things at once when I put in for it. I too intend to cancel but only because Im a team player, not because I'm afraid of any backlash from coppers. It's hilarious some guys will work VRI every month knowing full well the city would rather you work OT than hire new guys. No one cares the rest of the year though. Some coppers would call ANYONE that works VRI at ANYTIME a scab. So shut your fucking mouth because people do make mistakes. If you were to call me a scab to my face, I promise it would be the last time you did. Worry about yourself, you have no idea what anyone is going through and if they forgot. Mistakes happen. I'm sure you're supercop though. You know everything

I got it at 20 months on the job and no clout here...also don't you think that if people aren't signing up a person with six years on would have no issues?

Second issue why would I do anything the FOP says? They ask me not to work to make a statement..since when would
I do anything they ask? Do they have my back or my best interest? Officers getting fired. Policed getting ridiculed and this guy says what? Not a damn thing I hear crickets.. There is no unity on the dept. That's the way they want it and that's how they got it. I see on here all the time officers ridiculing the FOP and Angelo and all of a sudden they ask us not to work and everyone is like yeah I'm not going to work either, paste therir names on here if they sign up...

When we went in front of the arbitrator the city didn't even fight it cause they new they were wrong, plus the fop lawyers bought us lunch to celebrate, it was a win win situation, oh and that commander that denied us got dumped right after that, case ur wondering his name was velez I'm sure all the old timers remembers the mambo king such a jag.

If you are cancelling now, which is 10 days before Labor Day weekend, they should give you the cancellation number and keep moving, otherwise notate the date and time and who you talked to for when you file the grievance! You can't just make up this shit as you go along. I cancelled a day at the end of July, I called 3 days before and I was good!

Wtf? You logged on and actually counted this? You really need to get a life. Hobby would be a start. Make some friends... meet someone of the opposite or same sex. Working out is always good for you. Don't worry about others. Worry about yourself. You could've done something much more productive in that time. And for the guy in 005 who got 5 days... spend that shit on family friends and something really stupid. Enjoy it! Thanks for not falling victim to city and fop's fake propaganda.

Don't call them scabs before they work it.
They might not make it to work that day.
Think.

This scab knew what he was doing and didn't realize the backlash he'd get. It was all over the place not to put in for it.

I'm sick of you asshats commenting like you know what everyone was thinking. If true and if sincere he'll figure it out. You all need to stfu.
Over 20 yrs on and not only sick of this job but sick of all you haters. Everyone one of you that work VRI is guilty of feeding into the problem of us being down manpower. You all helped the band aid effect, so stop acting so righteous for only one damn weekend out of years you supported the problem.

A real plan of action , Zero work anymore VRI until the pension is fully funded as legally stated.

What can or can't the union do to the scabs? What they should do, is kick the scabs out of the Union for four months, no Union protection, and let the scabs realize how valuable Union protection is. There has to be consequences otherwise no one will listen. The city has a lot of uneducated and unintelligent city workers so the Union needs to start pushing their weight around with the members. It will only benefit everyone.

Guys, start taking clear pictures of the VRI and other volunteer overtime gigs that the union told us not to work. Email them to SSC under the contribution tab, the email is anonymous. Time for these scabs to squirm f****** punks. Make sure you talk to everyone you work with in your district to point out who the scabs are that work in your district. Use black magic marker and write SCAB on their lockers. Do whatever it takes to let it be known that these punks are costing us money and benefits for our family in the long run.
