SEPTA Union Authorizes Strike

The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority is facing its first strike since 2016.

Members of Local 234 of the Transport Workers Union authorized the strike in the event that contract negotiations break down.

Negotiations between the union, which represents 5,000 SEPTA employees, and SEPTA management have been ongoing since summer. The union’s contract expires on Nov. 1.

News reports indicate the key issues in the talks are wages, pandemic hazard pay and parental leave.

A strike would affect subway, trolley, and bus service, but not Regional Rail commuter trains.
