Bus, Subway and Trolley Service Resume as Strike Ends
The six-day SEPTA strike is over. Buses, trolleys and subways are running for the morning rush. The tentative contract was announced after just after midnight on Monday by city, SEPTA and union officials.
KYW's Kim Glovas reports that the bitter transit strike came to an end when SEPTA and Transport Workers Union officials signed the tentative plan at Governor Rendell's office at the Bellevue hotel. The governor says the remaining issues were hammered out by the deadline he had set, which means $7 million in state funding remains.
"My test which was that this would have to be voted on by the members for you to keep the state money in the mix, that test was met by this adoption of the agreement."For full story go to: http://www.kyw1060.com/
