The media mostly lionized the Chicago Police Department and police superintendent Garry McCarthy for their work during the NATO summit, but the Chicago Fraternal Order of Police is hardly basking in the afterglow. FOP, the city's police union, has filed no less than four grievances with the city over the last week. Their latest complaint regards the city not providing time-and-a-half pay for officers working six and seven day weeks for NATO, and often working 12-hour shifts.
An anonymous City Hall source told the Sun-Times Friday that the city made a "paperwork error" and will eventually pay out the compensation. As the Sun-Times notes, the FOP-CPD dispute comes a month before the union's contract expires.
