Mike Shield's FOP 7 Chicago Update
Members who are in DOG 64 and had both of their days off cancelled on Sunday, May 20th and Monday, May 21st should be aware that on Friday, May 25, 2012 they will be working six consecutive days.
Section 20.3 of our contract entitles those members to overtime pay for that date. Members should submit an overtime slip on that date so that they receive time and one-half for all hours worked that day.
Class Action Grievance Filed
The Lodge has filed a class action grievance on behalf of all officers who worked a regular tour of duty during the NATO Summit and had their hours adjusted by more than two hours from the designated start time of their normal watch.
There has been some debate between the Lodge and the Department as to the timekeeping procedures the Department is using to compute compensation. The Lodge filed this grievance to ensure that Officers are being compensated correctly per the Change of Schedule provisions of Section 20.7 of our contract.
The affected Officers do not have to do anything at this time other than keeping a personal record of the hours they worked during the Summit. We will keep you apprised of the status of this grievance.
COMMENT SECTION CLOSED
