Bush creates rail labor dispute board for SEPTA

Posted on April 12, 2004

The White House said it is setting up an emergency board to help settle a labor dispute between Philadelphia's mass transit agency and union-represented conductors.

A White House statement said that, effective April 12, the board will investigate and make recommendations to settle a labor dispute between the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) and its conductors.

The board will report back to President Bush 30 days after its creation, according to Reuters wire reports.

The dispute dates back to 2000, and the two sides are divided mostly by wages.

Bush established the board at the request of SEPTA, whose regional rail service is among the nation’s largest. SEPTA officials said the action is part of the dispute resolution process of the federal Railway Labor Act.
