SEPTA Regional Rail Workers Strike

Mediators met with representatives of SEPTA and the unions at about 7:45 p.m. Friday but no agreement was reached.

SEPTA Regional Rail workers are on strike as of early Saturday due to a long-running labor dispute.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the union workers are on strike as of 12:01 a.m. Saturday. Mediators met with representatives of SEPTA and the unions at about 7:45 p.m. Friday but no agreement was reached, according to the Inquirer.

The strike impacts all 13 lines on SEPTA’s Regional Rail service. It’s the first strike in 31 years. Bus and subway service are not impacted.

SEPTA's Regional Rail engineers have been working without a contract since 2010; the electricians have not had a contract since 2009.

Great, shut down a city because of greed and stupidity. We need a Ronald Reagan. By the way, with your rate hikes on train tickets, have you lost any of the customer base? Lower the rate equals higher base (economics 101). Let's go over the benefits and salaries of septa workers shall we? You guys would be amazed.

Yeah, let's. You would be surprised Ann. These workers haven't had a contract for over four years. They are certainly not greedy or stupid. They just want to be treated fairly like you and I.

Not having a contract doesn't mean that they aren't getting paid. No contract because of outrageous demands. Listen to the news and seek even more info that isn't published in the liberal media and you will see.
