Philly transit strike comes to an end

Posted on November 7, 2005

Subways, trolleys and buses started rolling again Monday after a weeklong transit worker strike was ended by an agreement between union and Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) officials.

After an all-night bargaining session and an intervention by Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell, SEPTA reached a tentative agreement on a four-year contract. The deal must still be ratified by workers.

The strike forced more than 400,000 daily riders to find another way to get around, as approximately 5,300 employees — drivers, operators, conductors, etc. — walked off the job Oct. 31.

The work stoppage represented Philadelphia's first transit strike since a 40-day walkout in 1998.
