The city may be praising Chicago police for a job well done after the NATO Summit, but the thank you stops there.

The Fraternal Order of Police recently filed a grievance against the city for its decision not to give officers compensation for working a sixth or seventh consecutive day during a single calendar week, despite it being in their contract, according to a post on the FOP’s website.

The post states: "The wording of Section 20.3 of our contract could not be any more unambiguous. It states: An officer who is in pay status for six (6) or seven (7) consecutive days within the pay period Sunday through Saturday will be compensated at the rate of time-and-one-half for work performed on the sixth (6th) day and seventh (7th) day."

This is the fourth grievance the FOP has filed since the Summit ended Monday, including a grievance against the city’s stance that officers could not request compensation for overtime worked during the summit.
