Lt’s Promotion Exam: UPDATE 03 May 07
As most of our members are aware on 01 May 07 the City of Chicago announced that there would be a RE-TEST for the previously administered oral portion of the Assessment Exercise.
The Chicago Police Sergeants’ Association WAS NEVER contacted or consulted with regards to this decision. In fact, it only came to our attention shortly before the teletype message was disseminated.
Many of our affected members have contacted us expressing their concerns of how the City of Chicago and the Department, along with the accounting firm of Ernst & Young could once again, administer a promotional examination that at best could be described as flawed. This latest step is grossly UNFAIR and raises major concerns of the INTEGRITY of the entire testing process.
Our affected members have expended a tremendous amount of energy, monies, and personal sacrifices, including time away from their families while preparing for this lengthy exam process.
We are currently in the process of discussing with our attorneys what options are available to us and how best to proceed on behalf of our members.
I appreciate the professional demeanor that our members have displayed when contacting the Association, along with their constructive suggestions and comments. I would encourage anyone who wishes to forward their comments to do so.
We will continue to post updates on our Web site as they become available.
