Memorial Day OT

This isn't really a "big" holiday coming up, yet the Department is offering OT to everyone who has a regular day off Memorial Day weekend. They're even calling people on furlough and saying you can work all of your days off if you like.

If they don't get enough volunteers, the Department is going to go by reverse seniority to cancel days off - which leads to a few interesting questions:
  • PPO's can't volunteer for the OT initiative - but can their days off be canceled or "adjusted" in the middle of a police period to screw them?
  • PO's with under four (or is it five?) years do not get Duty Availability (thanks Dean Angelo for screwing the youngsters). So can the Department cancel their days off using reverse seniority? They aren't available contractually. Do they pick the guy/gal with 5 years? We'd imagine that would make for an interesting grievance should the projected numbers be adequate.
And not that it's in effect at the moment, but can you imagine the Automated Timekeeping trying to keep up with this rolling disaster next year?

Is there a shortage of police officers in Chicago?

They've been reading off in roll call that all elective time due shall require a to-from to the area deputy. I've never heard of that one for Memorial Day weekend. But it's all legit, CPD is fully staffed. What a fucking joke this city and department is. Rahm could care less about the safety of Chi-towns coppers and its citizens. Strap it down, it's gonna be a long summer.

Good Afternoon,

In my short time here as the 019th District RBT Sgt., I have been impressed with the working relationship between 019th District personnel and the Detective Division.

In order to better facilitate information sharing and foster a better familiarity and comfortable relationship between the Detective Division and Patrol, I am asking each of you to coordinate with the 019th District Watch Lieutenants in order to attend roll calls regularly.

Using this forum will enable you to introduce yourselves to the watch personnel, discuss any issues which may help aid your investigations, along with those that can be improved upon, and share information regarding current crime trends and patterns on going in the 019th District.

I believe cultivating a positive working relationship between us and Patrol can only lead to better teamwork in achieving the common goal of the Department.

Your attention to this matter is appreciated.

Just plan on working one of your RDO's that weekend.

The Dept is coming up with some arbitrary number for each day.
Friday, they need (let’s say) 22 Officers in that DOG. However, there are only 12, including officers on Furlough, Medical IOD. That leaves 10 short of the Dept’s number, so reverse seniority happens. This means every officer in that DOG works.

They have already told officers with 15, 18, 20, and 25 years on that they are working. 25 years on, and you’re getting your DOG canceled because of “Reverse Seniority”? The most senior Officer is getting is Day Off canceled.

But the Department says “We have enough Manpower” and there’s “13,000” Cops on the job.

PPO's are at the will of the Dept. While they are on probation the Dept can utilize them any way it chooses.

PO's with under 5 yrs of service can be used for reverse seniority. The Duty Availability check (that's all Dean took away from them) has nothing to do with the use of those officers for any event or ot.
Duty Availability as spelled out by the contract is a pay allowance only and has nothing to do with Actual Officer availability for duty.

People have put there names in the book to get off this weekend and have been approved..so the question is.. If we are so short why are we approving time off? So in other words, if you put in for time off and get it your off and I have an RDO and get called into work? How the fuck does Time off supercede an RDO? can anyone explain that one? FOP can you explain? If we are short the how about people who are supposed to work, let them work and say sorry...no time off!

(OT) So the mayor who is completely violating federal immigration laws is now giving resources to the illegal criminals inviting more and more into our cash strapped city crime capital shooting central murder Inc. city :

https://onechi.org/resources/

Gee rahm how about some " resources" for the retired Chicago police officers that you took away their healthcare who brought their careers protected citizens in this corrupt city state and county? Mayor also how about some resources to boost our pension fund from the worst finding in the United States of America under 25% find it do to your current leadership you must pay the bills before you incur more bills for the taxpayers! Or maybe the retired police officer's Quick say they're from another country and illegally here and get free healthcare and free resources Yep that will be the ticket then we will be also part of your corruption red machine could we also disobey federal laws and not go to jail? The Felons watch your leadership and the other elected leaders including senator Duckworth and Durban and Tony and the 50 and all the rest who support violating federal immigration laws Shirley they feel they don't have to obey any lies either as it is the judges let them out of jail anyway.

How can you expect any law-enforcement in the city or state to enforce any law's knowing that The top elected people here disregard federal laws how does that work? You have to obey the laws before you break the laws because it makes it more fun correct? I cannot even give someone A traffic citation because it is not fair when you are allowed any other elective or allowed to continue breaking federal laws and then we warding lawbreakers as we are set to lose if we have not already lost billions of dollars in federal money that we so desperately need here.

duty availability should have never been in any contract for anyone to include supervisors( I was one). Extra pay should be based on your watch, with more pay going to night work. At one time I was an advocate for more pay for faster districts, but now that just about the entire city is a crap hole that would not be feasible or fair;. The entire pay system should be restructured .

Tell him to QUIT now. Sounds like a snowflake that can't handle the real world.
He will save himself a lot of future grief.

As for everyone else that is crying like snowflakes, they CAN cancel your day(s) off for any reason they choose. They just have to do it according to the contract. If the department doesn't follow the contract then it's incumbent upon the effected officer(s) to grieve it.
The city is always going to push the contract, it's a numbers game. If they only win 1% of all grievences filled they are still ahead of the game.

I suggest he or she go into work like his employer is requesting. If they're this upset about missing their first Memorial Day on the job due to work, I'd suggest finding another career. I'm not thrilled about it either, but you may want to let them know that the police department doesn't shut down on holidays. Also, you're suggesting they talk to an attorney about a cancelled RDO? This post has to be a troll, otherwise tell them to just quit now, there are too many entitled cry babies around here already.

Duty availability has to do with working all three shifts like when we rotated. It was a benefit that was kept even after the shift rotation ended. It doesn't mean your day off can't be cancelled or that you can't be called in even as a PPO. Read contract once and a while.

How can you expect any law-enforcement in the city or state to enforce any law's knowing that The top elected people here disregard federal laws how does that work? You have to obey the laws before you break the laws because it makes it more fun correct? I cannot even give someone A traffic citation because it is not fair when you are allowed any other elective or allowed to continue breaking federal laws and then we warding lawbreakers as we are set to lose if we have not already lost billions of dollars in federal money that we so desperately need here.

Overtime is being offered in 010 EVERYDAY for the summer. Of course the watch commander says that if you do volunteer, you better come in with numbers or else he knows how to "circumvent the contract" so that he can pick and choose who works it.

I hope he does. Then I will get paid after I file my grievance without having worked a single second.

I bet you are really scaring the watch commander. Your going to file a grievance with FOP. He is doing tough guy, now go get that pay for not working

Your "neighbors kid"???
If he's in the academy, he does what he's told!!
Refuse? Fire him!!
Tell your "neighbors kid" to find a new line of work. Obviously if he's gonna whine about working a holiday while he's in the academy, he's pretty much worthless!
WTF kind of people are we hiring and better yet, who's the moron who comes here & asks if a recruit in the academy can refuse to work a holiday?

Guess it's too late. We have been hiring them for a while with this idiot asking this question. Appears all is lost. Hard to believe what happened to the CPD
After 30 years I thought I've heard it all, but this takes the cake!!

Off Topic- if you go to zerohedge he explains the teacher pension fund and calls it a Ponzi scheme- which it is. Our Pension is very similar- so talk about cars, retro, vri and the rest- you will probably never get a pension.

Pension is not a Ponzi scheme. Would have collapsed long ago.Try looking it up. Jesus.

Absolutely, the officers that get duty availability are the reverse seniority. Under 5 years gets the days off. Period. That's the contract.

Any lawyers here? What do I suggest my neighbor's kid do if he's called in on Memorial? He's in the academy. Do the recruits have any rights at all? Can they refuse if not contractually bound?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Recruits are "at will" employees. The Dept can assign them to wherever they like whenever they like.
It is doubtful they will work anything more than a parade though.

One of the things no one mentions about our pensions is the return on investments. Those returns are low. Look at bank savings accounts....they pay less than 1% interest.

If and when the economy returns to robust fashion, and returns on investments go up, our pension fund should be in better shape. We'll see.

Yes it's easy. After you come in with nothing while getting paid around 53/hour. He doesn't offer you the opportunity to come in and work. There are a number of ways to work around you and plenty of other officers that will work their rdo for time and a half while giving a few parkers. Why should you or anyone be rewarded for doing nothing while making that kind of money? You are not answering jobs, running around all day dealing with anything. You're there simply to deter crime and that involves street stops, vehicle stops etc.

Take the time and bank it. At this rate, when you retire you will get three payout checks totaling in the 100,000 range. Even better, if you make rank, those PPO hours are now worth sergeant money. Better than the stock market!

If they are offering overtime it has to go by seniority. Maybe that would have worked in whatever cake ass unit he was in before, where people would be afraid of getting dumped for grieving, but it's not gonna happen in district.

Pension fund is limited to what they can invest in and the amount they can invest in in certain sections. They higher the risk the higher the returns but they can't take the risks because they need a reserve to pay the monthly pension checks. They can't afford to take a hit on a huge market drop because the checks still get issued each month

According to the Rauner/Emanuel/Madigan circle jerk master plan...

Once the State of Illinois and City of Chicago begin bankruptcy proceedings, public pension benefits will be significantly reduced. Only then will the CPD pension fund be in better shape.

All they ask for is a little more time to not pass two more state budgets.

They're really close.

To the poster who does not think the teachers fund is not a ponzi scheme. Look up the definition of a ponzi scheme. It basically states that old investors ( retirees) are being paid from the proceeds of new investors ( those now working) rather than the income from the investment vehicle. Now look at the out flow of funds from the teachers fund and the lack of income from investments. Our pension fund is basically the same, those now working are paying for the retirees not from the income of the fund. Just look up the definition.

Where are you getting your info about overtime in the 010th dist. I assume you mean 3rd watch; no one has been denied to work their rdo..no pressure for activity...all the wc said was bring in something, even just a few parkers so that we can justify the ot and keep it going so that we can all make some money..the watch sec is constantly askibg people to work...all people..

Isn't that why you get duty "availability"? Maybe a low paying 9 to 5 is more your speed. So you can make your party I mean. Suck it up pal.

Yeah! What a moron! He wants the officers working in the district and the detectives assigned there to actually get to know each other? What a terrible idea!

You fucking morons will find anything to complain about. Going to roll call to meet the officers in the district is actually a great idea, with zero downside. It should happen everywhere.
