During my career also belonged to the FOP .....they got six fellow officers laid off so the city could buy two new garbage trucks ......
IMHO unions Suck !
Oh and we had a " No Strike Clause " great that worked so well too .....
Two other jobs later in life ....Union ...did nothing but take money out of my check .......I'm not a big fan ..
