UTU-represented conductors reach tentative pact with SEPTA


The SMART Transportation Division of the United Transportation Union (UTU) has reached a tentative contract with the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) covering conductors and assistant conductors.

The agreement calls for wage increases totaling 11.5 percent over the five-year contract that are similar to increases the commuter railroad agreed to with the Transport Workers Union (TWU) in 2009, UTU officials said in a prepared statement. TWU represents subway and bus operators and mechanics employed by SEPTA.

SMART Transportation Division Local 61 in Philadelphia represents about 390 conductors and assistant conductors.

Ratification ballots, which have been mailed to members, will be tabulated after April 24. The tentative agreement also must be approved by SEPTA's board.
