SEPTA police end strike

Posted on April 2, 2012

PHILADELPHIA — Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority transit police ended their nine-day-long strike, philly.com reported.

The primary cause of the strike was a 35-cent-an-hour difference in "certification" pay between the union's demand and SEPTA's offer. Transit police were seeking the pay as a way of getting a small additional increase beyond the pattern set by the Transport Workers Union contract. The police union wanted 50 cents an hour, while SEPTA offered 15 cents an hour. Settlement details were not disclosed. For the full story, click here.
