For the second time in as many months, SEPTA and TWU 234 have agreed to a contract extension. The current CBA, which was originally scheduled to expire on March 15, had been extended to Friday. However, according to KYW 1060, SEPTA management "reluctantly" agreed to the 60 day extension. I have a sick feeling that the union is holding off on a strike until June, just as they did in 1998, when they walked off the job on June 1 for a 40-day strike right at the start of tourist season. For the next two months, at least, SEPTA will still be running.
