SEPTA talks underway as contract end nears
Last updated: Sunday, April 6, 2014, 2:27 PM
With a Monday deadline looming, negotiations have resumed between SEPTA and Transport Workers Union Local 234, a spokesman for the transit agency said Sunday.
Union officials have not issued a strike deadline, SEPTA spokesman Andrew Busch said.
Its not a situation where if it wasnt solved by midnight, theyre automatically going on strike, Busch said. Were hopeful it wont happen and were hoping to continue the progress with the negotiations.
Sundays talks resumed after both sides made progress in talks on Thursday and Friday, Busch said.
A walkout would be expected to be widely disruptive as it would likely involve city transit lines, as well as suburban buses, trolleys and the Norristown high-speed line. Computer rail lines would not be impacted.
