On July 22, Chicago’s City Council adopted a landmark Police Collective Bargaining Agreement which includes many important and long sought reforms in the police department.

Last week before the City Council’s Workforce Development Committee, David Johnson and Jim Franczek testified for three hours explaining the agreement to the members of the Council. Johnson and Franczek were interviewed in the The Chicago Sun-Times and The Daily Line on the agreement's many reforms. On July 15 the Committee unanimously recommended to the full City Council the labor agreement between the City and the Unions representing approximately 1,500 police supervisors. This agreement will provide the blueprint for the upcoming negotiations between the City and the Fraternal Order of Police which represents Chicago’s 13,000 rank and file police officers.
