Lt’s Promotion Exam: UPDATE 28 August 07
After the re-test was conducted on 23 June 07 several of our members contacted us regarding technical, administrative and procedural problems experienced during the testing process. Judging by information provided to us from our affected members it appears that the Re-Do Test did not come off much better than the original test.
In addition to the procedure the City used during the re-test to document any problems or concerns, we also requested that any of our affected members follow the same procedure that we utilized after the original test. This information was channeled through the Police Department – Personnel Unit, who in turn forwarded it to the City of Chicago Human Resource Division. Our attorneys also provided this information to the Federal Court appointed monitor.
It seems unimaginable that the City of Chicago and Ernst & Young would use the same video and audio equipment that malfunctioned during the original test, only to have some of the equipment once again malfunction.
As of this date neither the City nor Ernst & Young has responded to our inquiries or addressed the issues that have been documented. Our attorneys remain vigilant and will address any options that become available to us.
