Police Union Still Fighting City For Overtime From NATO Protests

CBS Chicago

CHICAGO (CBS) — The Fraternal Order of Police is accusing the Emanuel’s administration of concealing a ruling regarding overtime for police officers during the NATO summit, reports WBBM’s Mike Krauser.

It was a chaotic four days of marches in the streets by NATO protesters. Police cancelled days off and all hands were out to keep the peace.

The FOP contract calls for time and a half for officers working sixth and seventh days, but the city denied them overtime for the officers.

The lieutenants have the same provision in their contract and the Chicago Sun-Times is reporting an arbitrator ruled in their favor in March, but the FOP just learned that and says the ruling could have had an impact on the ran-and-file officers’ effort to squeeze a million dollars in overtime out of the city.
