SEPTA reaches tentative pact with transit police union


After launching a strike against the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) last Friday afternoon, the Fraternal Order of Transit Police reached a tentative agreement with the agency later that day and workers were back on the job Saturday morning.

SEPTA and union officials have been negotiating a contract for almost two years. During that time, union negotiators have agreed to three tentative contracts, which were rejected by members each time, according to SEPTA.
