Interview with Ed Marciniak
QUESTION 24
SHEILA C. BERNARD:

What led Mayor Daley to the bargaining table?

ED MARCINIAK:

Well, first of all, you have to remember that the mayor was a political master. His objective was to win friends and influence enemies. It was not to make enemies. And so he was looking for the opportunity to come to the bargaining table. He didn't have to be made to come to the bargaining table. That's what he wanted. And if, if the, these, these marches brought everybody to the ma- ah, bargaining table, the business community, the religious leaders, the, ah, leaders of the labor movement, civic leaders, that's exactly what he wanted. And we got it.
