SEPTA and union still talking
Posted: Sunday, April 6, 2014, 3:01 AM
ANOTHER DAY of contract negotiations wrapped between Philadelphias transit system and the union representing thousands of workers.
Officials from the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority and Transport Workers Union Local 234 met yesterday for about seven hours and finished up without reaching an agreement.
Talks are scheduled to resume tomorrow.
Contracts covering three SEPTA divisions expired within the past three weeks. However, union officials ruled out a strike before the expiration of a fourth contract tomorrow.
After informal talks Thursday evening, both sides said a possible two-year deal is on the table.
Union president Willie Brown called it the most productive meeting since talks began, and said negotiators are close.
