The Delaware County Daily Times ran an editorial regarding SEPTA's contract agreement with TWU Local 234. It's probably nothing you haven't heard before (fare hikes are bad, SEPTA dodged a bullet, etc.). On a related note, UTU Local 1594, which represents operators in Red Arrow, will hold a mass membership meeting on Sunday in Upper Darby, which will include an update on negotiations and a potential strike authorization vote. Frontier's contracts are set to expire April 6. (I had initially missed this one; I guess I was too busy laughing at Gil Spencer's Friday column.)

Also on Friday, the Inquirer ran a story on TWU 234 president Jean Alexander, who was honored by the Pennsylvania chapter of the AFL-CIO at their annual convention at the Wyndham Philadelphia at Franklin Plaza, which coincidentially, was the same hotel where negotiations took place.
