And now the FOP 7 Chicago Updates brought to you by President Michael Shields
Comp Time FAQs
The Lodge is very much aware of the unreasonable and arbitrary constraints being placed on requests for elective time off. The Lodge filed a class action grievance on this issue in May 2012. The City has responded that it is unable to schedule or hear any grievances until October 2012. The Lodge immediately filed a complaint (Unfair Labor Practice) with the Illinois Labor Relations Board. We have submitted the appropriate supporting documents to support our case. We are awaiting a decision from the ILRB.
There are many misconceptions by management regarding elective time off. Hopefully the following FAQs will help our Officers through these difficult times until the Lodge can obtain a resolution through the grievance process.
