That Adjustment Week

Tin-foil hat alert!
  • Anonymous said...

    Will the department try to redeploy officers from their bid districts come the middle of July? We will be without a contract at that time. Why is a adjustment week needed then? Will they subtract the lowest senior officers from each district for redeployment? Will we then rebid for watches come the end of June for that mid July adjustment week? Or are permanent 10 or 12 hour days on the horizon?
Um, no. When a labor contract expires, the provisions remain in effect until a new labor agreement is signed. Nothing changes...which you'd know if you actually paid attention and lived through more than one Contract.

The adjustment week in the middle of next year is for one simple reason:
  • Day Off Groups 61, 63 and 65 have gotten the most beneficial furloughs for the last few years - 26 days at a time if you choose the optimal segments.
  • 62, 64 and 66 could only get a 20 day furlough, regardless of the segment.
This is because of the provision that lets you build your furlough forward and backward to your days off.

The Adjustment Week flips this around so 62, 64 and 66 get an opportunity for the 26 day vacations.

Nothing sinister, nothing being plotted, no sudden schedule shifts. That isn't to say the Department couldn't redeploy the lowest seniority officers if they got some manpower report (like we posted about yesterday) or the DOJ came up with some wild scheme. But that would probably be allowable under certain narrow circumstances with the current Contract.

In northeast Wisconsin the corn harvest has been good with mold for late crops. A lot of rain.

Tough shit. You don't like the DOG you're in we shouldn't be swapping mid year. This is how we pick furloughs ...another dumb idea by the brain trust

We have adjustment weeks every 7 years or so. Usually at the end of December, but this year they put it in the middle of the year so we get some benefit of extra police working for a few days in the busy season. Nothing more than that. No change of DOGs or furloughs.

Wouldn't DOG's change with the adjustment week at the beginning of the year?
May be the extra manpower during summer is an incentive.

if no provisions are changed in an expired contract what was all the fuss about when a letter of notification wasn't sent in time for the last contract.

They will use this latest "study" to rearrange the Department. Count on that.

Go to the 12 hour shift , good for everyone
you are day off every other weekend
put all the house cats from patrolman to lieutenant back in district patrol
hire civilians or police officers that can walk , talk , vacation , pick up their kids , work part time , go to school full time that are on duty disability .
Force these phony duty disability officers back to work in office assignments
they are draining the pension , you are paying for it , they could serve in CAPS Office , District , Tactical secretary , Records division , mailroom , free up the full duty cowards

Now this is a an adjustment :
"In northeast Wisconsin the corn harvest has been good with mold for late crops"

Are we talking sweet or feed here?
The rains slowed upper harvest that should have been completed by September, can't let that crop sit on the stalk.
(though deer pop should be well feed by now for Dec..ay?)

What should be looked into is harvesting the brains from the docile Hereford hogs and transplant them into the obtuse, angry and greedy Aldermen.
We can start with that "Knee High by the Fourth of July" mayor.

• Read that the feral City Council pig sty had unanimously voted and approved to remove the Honorary Trump Plaza Sign.
Boy, they sure have their priorities, they say Trumps description of Chicago violence is rhetoric.
Did Alds. Napo-41, Laurino-39, Arena-45 concur? Hmmmm.
Meanwhile as of yesterday, another 6 dead and 19 shot in Horrible Murder Town Chicago.

Most of the current members of CPD have never had the pleasure of working without a union contract. Talk to those who where on the job prior to around 1983. You are going to have a tough contract fight next year. The progressive element wants to strip you of all emplolyment rights, of all just cause and due process rights and treat you like a 3rd rate citizen. Of course, they don't want that treatment for themselves or their friends, only cops. Hang tough. I remember all of the injustices put upon working cops back " in the day" before a police union.

(SORRY MISSPELLING) The adjustment week just shows that statistically 7% more police are working that week because statistacally they are NOT OFF WORK (no furloughs). It affects nothing.In theory it appears as though we have more police working in July. There is NO scheduled furlough at that time during the adjustment week, but extensions are still allowed on the front and back. Not a big deal, and might get people with that furlough a bit less or more time off depending on DOG. It only appears that we have more police working, when we really don't. NOTHING NEFARIOUS IN IT JUST NUMBER MANIPULATION.

I know I'm an idiot but what difference does it make with working day furlough?

The original calender had the adjustment week scheduled for the week of the 4th on July. We are fortunate that there was a lady minute change.

November 11, 1980 FOP won right to bargain contract on behalf of Chicago Police Officers. Not sure of date of original contract.
