Laborer Union Caves
The Daley administration announced today that it would reduce the number of proposed city layoffs by 145 positions.
To close a budget shortfall, Mayor Richard Daley had proposed laying off 929 city employees.
The council is expected to vote on Daley's budget proposal on Wednesday.
City officials said the reduction in the number of layoffs was the result of negotiations with labor unions that represent city workers.
The city's laborers agreed to take an unpaid furlough day.
Look for this to be used as a club on other unions. CPD is already doing less with less so we don't see how he can get blood out of this turnip.
