Half a Win

But not really, seeing as how the Department just made 55 FTO's so there isn't any "shortage" now:
  • The Arbitrator concludes that the O’Neill(Don)/Aguilar (Rich) testimony clearly establishes that any claim for compensation based upon alleged past practice as to the application of Section 26.1 prior to January 11, 2013 fails as not being factual.”

    However, the Lodge, realizing the testimony of Rich Aguilar was not ideal, attempted to persuade the arbitrator by referencing Section 20.2-Compensation for Overtime.  In this we were successful as you can verify through the Arbitrator’s ruling:

    “The best this arbitrator can do in terms of remedy is to find that Section 20.2 is applicable in the appropriate case, …that he or she is entitled to overtime compensation over and above the 30 minutes by applying the provisions of Article 20.2 on the basis that the actual overtime was necessary to prepare the required multi-DOR’s and Cycle Summaries.”

    To summarize, this grievance was partially granted.  The arbitrator ruled that since past practice was not proven, there will not be any retroactive payments to the affected FTOs.  However, going forward, if an FTO has multiple recruits in the future and it takes more than .5 hours to complete the DORs and Cycle Summaries, he is to submit an overtime slip to his Supervisor for the the amount of time over .5 hours it took to complete these forms.
So, even though they took advantage of the FTO's once, they promise never ever to do it again (the beaten wife defense) and the City does what it should have done before and promoted a bunch of FTO's, thus never paying the FTO's for doing double work.

Unfortunately a 1/2 a win for The CPD is actually great. This FOP Lodge 7 is gonna screw a lot of the current POs. According to The Lodge 7 president Chicago has the youngest large City police force. Have U ever called the people manning our lodge? It's a "spot" and until this changes coppers will get screwed. When U call there all too often it's a "what do you want now?" type situation. The people answering the phones are almost like children the way they guess at the answers to your important questions. Ull have some1 at The FOP say they have "30 years" OTJ" but what help is that to me if he/she has ZERO expertise, no knowledge of any sort on the issue that needs a remedy.
The punting of answers is all too common with this lodge. Three contracts proves this. We get our asses powdered ever contract. The retro checks are somehow deemed as a win and that's simply myopic. We worked for the money. It's ours and not a bonus.
This very Blog has called out the FOP 7 too many times to count.
Going forward, our lodge needs to be looked at as a team that means business. Right now, as mentioned earlier, our FOP 7 is a spot. We're better than this as far as what we accept as our representation. So and so might be a good guy, but would U start him on a major sports franchise? Hell no! Only those that produce and continually try and step up their game should be considered as the members who represent us. The younger Katz are gonna be naked in the breeze if we don't set the example and provide more cover to these Katz in their 20's or early 30's. After this age Ur fucked cuz more often than not the copper has children and better 1/2s. They're now prisoners of an organIzation that that simply can't be trusted.
The Brits have a name for the FOP 7 situation.
It's called Bolox
Stay safe

"However, the Lodge, realizing the testimony of Rich Aguilar was not ideal,..."

How about the Lodge realize that Rich Aguilar was responsible for approximately 6,000 (that's right, SIX THOUSAND) unfiled grievances?

You see, Rich was in charge of the handling grievances under the Donahue regime and then under Shields. Knowing that his time was running out, he chose to salt away boxes and boxes of grievances rather than file them, work out amicable remedies or request arbitration for the better ones. These 6,000 grievances were discovered in various locations of the FOP once Dean and Company took the helm.

So if you're one of those people who filed a greviance years ago but still hasn't heard anything about it, chances are very good that they're hoping you forgot completely about it. Call them and demand to know the status of your unanswered grievance(s).

PS - FUCK RICH AGUILAR

BS games, screwing with people over a couple dollars at the end of the day. FOP did jack to help those ET's and won't do jack to help the FTO's in the same situation. Bring back those trained ET's, they are needed! And keep these FTO's if classes are graduating soon of PPO's, makes no sense!

I remember bidding in to a district and I did not make it. So I called and asked what the cut off date was for that district. Don O'Neill picked up the phone and told me that was not relevant and click. He hung up on me. I called the next day and some sergeant picked up the phone. I asked the same question and the sergeant told me what the cut off date was. Some white shirts hide behind their white shirt and act like assholes.

(OT) You can read the story and see a picture of the weapon here: http://www.cnn.com/2016/09/15/us/ohio-columbus-police-kill-teen/

A police officer shot and killed a 13-year-old robbery suspect in Ohio's capital after the boy pulled a BB gun out of his waistband, police said, a shooting that city leaders said would be investigated thoroughly to determine if charges are warranted.

Tyre King, who is black, died at a hospital after an officer, who is white, shot him several times Wednesday evening outside a house in east-central Columbus, police said. Earlier, police said the boy's name was Tyree.
King, an eighth-grader, had a BB gun that "looks practically identical" to the type of handgun that Columbus police carry. This gun had a laser sight mounted on the bottom.

After looking at the weapon that was in the possession of this 13yr old, you, I or any clear thinking police would have done the same thing. Thought the same thing. It looked like a weapon, acted (laser sight) like a weapon, so the split second conclusion is that it was a weapon.

BUT

Instead of the Chief of Police or the Mayor coming out and saying that the shooting was justified, they are sending the investigation to the GRAND JURY so they can decide if the officer did wrong and to indict if necessary.

Way to go Ohio. That is backing your men......

Not only did AguLIAR hide this persons hundreds of grievances, the new FOP people found over 6,000 grievances that AguLIAR never handled as he was supposed to. I know guys that haven't heard shit in years about various grievances they filed and essentially lost money because AguLIAR failed (purposely) at his duties to the membership. I suggest you contact the FOP and inquire the status of any unresolved grievances that you may have filed. Perhaps there's a way to go after AguLIAR civilly for failure to perform his duties. Maybe have your lawyer look into going after whoever else may have "dropped the ball accidentally" still on the fop board, after all they are insured. Get your $$$$ people.

At least Aguilar knew what he was talking about. Kilmore his replacement should replace the walls in his office with mirrors. Every time I ask him a question as a unit rep the answer is wrong or he can't give me one. We need people in the lodge who know the contract. I repeat we need people in the lodge that know the contract. Think about that next year when these guys come out to roll calls. Ask contractual questions and see who knows the answers. How about a debate? Dougherty challenged Angelo to a debate last year and Angelo wouldn't have anything to do with a debate. It was a good idea and we should demand it.

Running for the exit labelled "RETIREMENT."

But hold on...

to paying mere nickels on the dollar,
(The famous 1.5x Federal Poverty Level "Guarantee")
to take credit for "saving" it after
years of criminal underfunding and theft by himself
and shortshanks...

What are the hands on the Federal Statute of Limitations
Clock reading on this bullshit?

"You Cops are just angry for no good reason!"

It smacks of nothing more than:
"How dare you Cops run and try to save
yourselves from US!"

Respond.
Cut a report.
Whistle for the Body-Snatchers.
Oversee CFD hosing the blood, shit,
brains, teeth and skull fragments into the sewer.

Have as little interaction
as possible with the peoples and folkses
of the "community" who fervently wish to see you
nothing but hurt, ruined, terminated, imprisoned or dead.

"Why ain't y'all axin' us anything like y'all used to?
Don't y'all care about US anymore?"

Ditto for local media and elected officialdom
who swear they have no real use for you other than
to protect THEM from members of the same "community"
they relentlessly pander and cater to.

Oh wait...
They do get to wax poetic and speechify real
nice about all the pretty dress blue uniforms
at an honors funeral.

It makes THEM feel so necessary and alive to opine
so smugly and banally about the "Sea of Blue"
when we turn out to give one of our own back
to Mother Earth.

"But you Cops think too much of yourselves.
So stop being so angry about finally being knocked
down the societal ladder a few rungs. You guys had
it coming for a long time anyways."

Yeah...
