Even as the CTA is still negotiating with the unions to try to save some of the service cuts set to go into effect Feb. 7, Mayor Daley says forget about it. It’s over. We can’t stop the CTA cuts.
Way to undercut your CTA president, Mayor Daley.
Pressed whether there is anything he could do to avert the cuts, the
mayor said, “No….I don’t think so. They’ve done everything possible.
They’ve been to Springfield to talk about it. I really believe you have
to start building a huge advocacy group for public transportation. You
have to start realizing that public transportation is the future of a
city like ours.”
Meanwhile the CTA’s biggest union is threatening that it may strike if the cuts go into effect. Nice.
