Two thousand Chicago Teamsters are expected to vote to authorize a strike next week. If city truck drivers walk off the job, snow removal and garbage pickup could grind to a halt. Snow removal at O'Hare and Midway airports could also be impacted.

The Teamsters said Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley is punishing the union for rejecting his demand that members take furlough days.
