FOP 7 CHICAGO UPDATE COURTESY OF PRESIDENT MIKE SHIELDS


NATO OVERTIME CONVERSION REQUEST LINK - CLICK HERE

Some members had problems with the link in an earlier email. The updated link listed below should remedy that situation. We apologize for the inconvenience. The Lodge filed a class action grievance when the Department denied our members from exercising their right to select compensatory time as reimbursement for overtime hours worked during the NATO Summit.

The Department has decided to settle this grievance by allowing our members to be credited with compensatory time for overtime hours worked during the NATO Summit. Any monies paid to any Officer for these overtime hours may be converted to compensatory time and the monies will be deducted from the Officer's August 16, 2012 payroll check if an Officer agrees to opt into this settlement.

FSLA hours (those hours worked in excess of 171 hours for the police period) are not subject to conversion. All boxes require an answer to qualify for this settlement. Your request must be submitted by 1600 hours on Friday, June 29, 2012. Please use the link to file your request. Members must submit a separate request for each date they would like to have converted to comp time.
