TWU International Union Stands with Striking Members in Philadelphia
Washington, D.C. – Nearly 5,000 SEPTA workers represented by TWU Local 234 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania have walked off the job and are headed to the picket lines this morning. The union members operate subways, trolleys and buses all around the city, and went on strike late last night after negotiations failed to result in an agreement. While bargaining continued past the deadline and into the night, no deal was reached and the contract has now expired.
