In a lot of these places, there have been complaints about delays in officers responding," said Tamara Cummings, an attorney for the Illinois Fraternal Order of Police Labor Council, which represents cops in about 460 agencies across the state.
But in Naperville, a picket line is planned Tuesday outside the City Council meeting as a protest of the recent layoffs of six cops in the city of 144,000, Cummings said.
Cummings said her union has filed an unfair labor practice charge against Naperville. Layoffs weren't discussed during 18 months of negotiations between the union and Naperville over wages and health insurance, Cummings said. The layoffs were announced about a week after those issues were settled, she said.
"They have $20 million in the general fund," she said.
