"I HAVE PROTECTED MY MEMBERS."
Those words from TWU Local 234 President Jean Alexander marked the opening remarks at a press conference moments ago announcing an agreement between TWU and SEPTA. KYW NewsRadio 1060's David Madden reports that the tentative agreement, reached shortly before 10:00pm Sunday night after a lengthy negotiation period. The headline (Alexander's quote) makes it appear as though SEPTA workers may not be forced to pay a portion of their insurance premium, though nothing will be confirmed until the contract is ratified. This means that all SEPTA buses and trains will continue to run as scheduled tomorrow morning. Which means the strike plans are pretty much a moot point ... until next year.
