Daley : Picketing Won't Impact Olympic Bid :Cop Union "UNFAIR"
Daley: Cop union 'unfair' to Olympic bid March 28, 2009 It is "unfair" for police to try to link their pay dispute to Chicago's bid to host the 2016 Olympics, Mayor Richard Daley said Saturday.
Police union members unhappy with contract negotiations say they will picket City Hall on Thursday--the same day the International Olympic Committee's evaluation team arrives in Chicago.
"If everybody has a complaint about something else, it has nothing to do with 2016," the mayor said. "It's really unfair because the Olympics is bigger than Mayor Daley. It's bigger than the police or fire union, all these unions. It's bigger than them.
"This is about the vision of the city. This is about transforming the city. This is something that other cities are fighting for."
But Daley added he was not concerned the protest would have any impact on Chicago's chances of being awarded the games over three other finalists--Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo--in October, when the IOC is scheduled to make its decision.
"If they want to demonstrate--fine, they can demonstrate. But it won't have any affect," the mayor said. _______________________________________________ Bitch2: Unfair! The most corrupt mayor calling our union unfair thats the pot calling the kettle black. I heard Chicago is in last place and this protest by the police will put the nail in the coffin.
