Mayor Daley today sloughed off a planned strike authorization vote by 2,000 Chicago truck drivers, saying he does not believe truckers would risk their "tremendous" jobs by crippling city snow removal, garbage collection and airport operations.
- "These are tremendous jobs. ... They realize these are great jobs. ... You get a great salary. You get a great pension. You get great health care. You get sick days. You get happy days. ... Every day you want, you get off," the mayor said.
