As 1,500 city workers await threatened pink slips, Mayor Daley (before he heads to Switzerland) met with union leaders to try to hash out some sort of compromise. Chicago Federation of Labor President Dennis Gannon said, "We may take a tough hit, and we probably are at the end of the day, but we want to get our arms around this as best we possibly can to make sure we minimize the amount of layoffs."
