TWU strikes, shutting down large portions of Philly’s SEPTA system

The 4,700 members of Transport Workers Union Local 234 in the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation’s (SEPTA) City Transit Division went on strike on November 1, 2016, after once-promising talks for a new contract stalled over pension benefit changes.

 

With both Broad Street and Market-Frankford Lines affected along with SEPTA buses and trolley services throughout Philadelphia, estimates put the impact at reaching nearly 400,000 riders that use the SEPTA services throughout southeastern Pennsylvania.
