A word from FOP 7 PRESIDENT MIKE SHIELDS


Pension Legislation Alert
As you are already aware public pensions are under attack. The Lodge has entered into the WE ARE ONE ILLINOIS coalition with members of several unions. There is strength in numbers. The Lodge is requesting that you and your family members contact your State Representatives and State Senators now. Please tell them to say NO to any legislation which would diminish or would change the way pension benefits are earned and calculated. We have been successful in the past by making sure our legislators are aware that they are elected to serve their constituents.

We ask that you visit the WE ARE ONE ILLINOIS website. Sign up for email updates and click on the link that will connect you by phone or email to your State Representatives and Senators.

Members may also call 1-888-412-6570 directly. You will be connected with your State Representative and State Senator.


NATO Uniform Resale
The Lodge has received many requests from Officers looking for additional uniform items for the upcoming NATO Conference. The Lodge will host a Uniform Resale on Thursday May 17, 2012 from 0900 hrs until 1400 hrs at the FOP Hall located at 1412 W Washington.
