Representatives of Transport Workers Union Local 234 now say that SEPTA workers won’t strike, even if a new contract isn’t agreed to in time.
The current contract under which employees are working expires at 12:01 a.m. Saturday.
However, union representatives issued a statement Friday saying that even if an agreement wasn’t reached in time, workers would stay on the job, The Philadelphia Inquirer reported.
A strike would affect SEPTA bus, subway and trolley service. Regional Rail would not be impacted.
