Contract Deal Reached: No SEPTA Strike

No Comments

septaSEPTA and its transit union reached a tentative contract agreement late Friday night, removing the threat of a strike that would have brought subways, buses and trolleys to a halt.

Broadcast and published reports say the proposed contract is a two-year deal and includes a five-percent raise.

The tentative agreement still must be approved by members of the Transport Workers Union and by the SEPTA board. But both SEPTA board chairman Pasquale Deon and TWU President Willie Brown have praised the agreement.

The thousands of Temple students, faculty and staff who rely on SEPTA transit to get to class or jobs can breathe a bit easier – there will be no SEPTA transit strike.
