CBSChicago."It is difficult to imagine how the Mayor of Chicago thinks a collective bargaining agreement can be unilaterally tossed aside when she doesn't get her way, or that she has the right to silence those who speak out against her. We will stay united with Lodge 7 members as they bargain over this issue in good faith, and we urge the city to do the right thing and follow the legally binding contract they have with police officers," the statement read.

The Chicago Police Department sent out a memo to all officers informing them that their elective time off will be restricted until further notice.
