Alley spoke up by mentioning that a current Cicero Teamster employee needs to utilize the one-week vacation that is promised to him so that he can attend to his child that will be undergoing a surgery during the second week of February.
"It's a tough position," Alley said. "This is something that could have been taken care of a long time ago, or tonight."
Alley said he's worried the amendment will not be approved in time. Since the one-week paid vacation term was already agreed upon, Alley said he doesn't understand why it cannot simply be amended into the contract, as it should be.
The board will discuss the amendment again during the Feb. 10 meeting.
