Unread postby Guest » 06/25/11 12:21:27
To View the list of names and salary go to the Al Crespo Gram Report and click under, " Crespo-Gram Documents on-line archive "
Remember Martin Garcia the armed janitor who was hired by the fire dept. for $80,000 after he retired last Sept.
Commissioners aid making over $100,000
Madelin Pacheco Regalados girlfriend $67,000
Larry Springs $61,824 severance payment
etc etc etc
We have $54 million shortfall for next years budget. No raises and a threat of more paycuts.
Why doesn't the FOP do or say anything about this?
We took pay cuts for Christ!!!!!
We and our families are paying the price for this.
Where is our union representation?
Where is the War and protest?
The only thing I've seen the FOP ( Armando and Ortiz ) is donate our money to Regalado and his daughter.
Dear Ortiz & Armando

Dear Ortiz & Armando
The troops can't afford another paycut or layoffs. We are being worked double for less and more are retiring placing extra burdens on our guys in patrol. We've lost to much so far and with the recent downgrade to our bonds we will be losing even more in the future.
THE CLOCK IS TICKING
This post will be continually updated with what our union is failing to do and address.
DID YOU KNOW:
- Our union is still taking trips with our money
- Claims we are at WAR with the city yet has stopped it's efforts before starting
- Failed to Notify us members ahead of time of impending future cuts and layoffs.
- Failed to fight at commission meetings to prevent wasteful, unjust, and even corrupt spending habits by city officials. (This effects us too)
- Has failed to challenge the Mayor in any ways similar to the way the challenged Diaz.
- NO boycotts of city
- Failed to address election procedures
- Centralized roll calls or even coming to visit members at roll calls
- No challenges to over 300+ new hires by mayor while in a freeze.
I could list several other things to bring up but for now I'll let this be discussed. Our union has Failed us and continually does each and every day. We need accountability and when future cuts come our way I want a few heads to roll.
As i said the clock is ticking
Please add more to the list we need to put pressure on our union.
Cancel BOLO for FOP (Javi & Armando)

Armando and Javi have finally come out of hiding. They have been nowhere to be found as of late especially since their guy, "the IMBECILE mayor" has been getting his butt kicked all over the media. This is the mayor that illegally opened up our contract and took money out of our pockets. Yesterday Armando came out of hiding to announce to the media that it was his opinion that the chief has to leave at the end of his drop. Today both these traitors pushed out an e mail detailing a meeting they had with the manager, the chief and Asst. Chief Blom. They say they want to kick cops out of TOS and some other places and put them in Patrol since the department is spending too much on overtime. Since when is that an issue. Just recently there were e mails showing how the mayor let Univision and Lincoln Marti Schools off the hook for the police overtime accumulated for work performed at the 3 kings parade, Jose Marti parade and the MLK Parade. Although the mayors pals were presented with invoices he said they could have it for free. That's real nice however this is over $200K which has been charged to the police overtime budget. The FOP should have been up in Arms but they kept silent on the issue as they are in bed with that imbecile thief of a mayor and did not want to upset hem. All of a sudden today they are concerned about the chief spending overtime in patrol. These two clowns need to crawl back in their holes. Armando will do anything to get a staff position and Javi is the ultimate FOLLOWER.

That's real nice Javi and Armando. You bozos can't run a tab at the bar at the FOP, but you're going to tell the chief how to run a police departnent. Rather than giving advice to the chief, why don't you grow some and tell the city administration that they can save money by charging all these for-profit companies for in-kind (free) cops on overtime for parades and other events.
It turns out that these companies that get free services from the city are making money by charging other sponsors to participate. You don't hear a peep from Armando and Javi. You guys have no credibility.
One other question. The budget started in October, and now you're concerned about the budget?
Do you think we're stupid?

My understanding is that union is in bed with our Mayor. Witin the last couple of year we have only been screwed with all contact negotiations. Brother & sister I think is time to stand up for whats right and stop ignoring the promises and lies from (Javi & Armando). At the end of the day its us Rookies who are going to pay with our jobs. Don't let history repeat itself and be handed pink slips. The truth of the matter is the same tactics the were used on us in our last contract and will probably be used on us come September 2011. Don't let our union foul you, the signs are there and the begining to our faith is near. I can guarantee you, no one is going to want a second paycut espeacially (the veterans) during these economic times. We as rookies are the future of the departments so lets stand up and fight along with our veterans brothers for whats right !

Just remember, at the end of the day Armando and Javi have a stronger bond with the Mayor than the one they have with the rank and file.
Promotions are important to these two bozos.

I have seen him in Patrol. We don't need the likes of him on the street. Please keep him away from Patrol.If you value the safety and well being of your fellow officers you'll want him away from the working troops.
Recall FOP staff now

We keep fighting the Mayor here but not where it counts,our union! Let's stop playing games with our future and recall Armando and his staff. So what is the first step we have to take to get these guys out? Oh and don't tell me to attend meetings because I work B-shift in the North,just how can we get the ball rolling?
This is by far,the worse FOP administration in my short history here! Armando was not this bad a few years ago or did he pull the wool over our eyes?
Vote "NO" for any contract
Unread postby Observer1 » 07/18/11 23:34:01
Any contract FOP proposes vote "NO"
We are in the middle of litigation regarding the "imposed contract" why on earth would we voluntarily sign a contract that reflects the same agreement as the "imposed contract", plus it will also have further cuts in it. It might be just me but i say F it impose another contract on us and fight the City's absurd and unnecessary spending.
WHERE IS OUR WAR!!!! geez we might as well higher the security guards union they even are protesting. I refuse to take any cuts or make changes to our salary, work days, holiday pay, pension, ect. The fop is obviously is in bed with the mayor and doesn't show any fight.
Armando & Ortiz start speaking out against the mayor and stop having lunch with him and his cronies. You've sold us out the least you can do is either pull a 180 or admit your connection with him. Maybe it's time to dump some union board dirt and photos to mr. Crespo. You know what i'm talking about and it will ruin "you".

Both you and that a hole Armando are pieces of crap. W e finally have a chief and stafF that support us but you don't like him because he won't promote you to a staff position. I can't wait to kick your arse for backstabbing the rank and file. AND AFTER I kick your arses I will personally take your badges from you and turn them in to property. You are both traitors to law enforcement.
Connect the DOTS

It doesn't matter how many meetings you go to. Javi and Armando have a hidden agenda with the mayor and it doesn't include the rank and file.Wake up and smell the coffee. Your own Pres and VP are only looking out for themselves. Recall these clowns while you still have time.

Most of the Board of the FOP are there because they're screw up and need a life line for all the trouble they get into. Armando (Mercado cop), Javi (bad arrests, especially on the blacks), Cassanova (nuff said). What a bunch of losers.
