SEPTA continues contract negotiations with TWU

Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) currently is negotiating a new contract with Transport Workers Union (TWU) Local 234 — the authority’s largest union, which represents more than 4,700 city transit division operators and mechanics.

The current contract is set to expire at midnight March 14. SEPTA and TWU officials have been working the past several weeks to resolve contractual issues. The authority expects to reach an agreement with the union before the contract expires, but is providing passengers a brochure detailing SEPTA’s service contingency plan in case an agreement isn’t reached in time.

The city transit division includes 74 trolley and bus routes operating in Philadelphia, and the Broad Street and Market-Frankford elevated subway lines.
