CTA prepares the pink slips
How would you like to be "administratively separated" from your job?
That's what the CTA is preparing to do to many of its workers if the state legislature doesn't fork with the $55 million needed to balance the CTA's budget.
The Sun-Times reported Friday about how the CTA sent layoff notices to 1,884 employees last week. The CTA also issued a scripted guide for managers, including this line: "You will be administratively separated from CTA effective (July 17). This decision has been reviewed by management and is final."
And: "Don't try to find some cause in something you did or didn't do. Instead, focus on making the best of the situation."
And that's to Tony's SaveChicagoTransit site for the tip on the story.
