Transport Strike Clogs Philly Roads

November 4, 2016

PHILADELPHIA — Commuters are hitting clogged roads, jumping on bikes and organizing carpools as the Philadelphia’s transit strike enters Day 4.

Transit workers hit the picket lines again Nov. 4 as no contract agreement was reached overnight.

On Nov. 3, the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority asked for assurances from the city’s striking transit union that it will suspend its walkout on Election Day if no contract agreement is reached by then.

The agency says it will go to court to try to force transit employees to work on Nov. 8.

The head of the Transport Workers Union local says SEPTA should focus instead on reaching a settlement.

The union’s 4,700 workers walked off the job after midnight Oct. 31, shutting down transit service that provides about 900,000 rides a day.
