According to SEPTA officials, Transport Workers Union Local 234 President Willie Brown has publicly said that union members will not strike at midnight.

 

On Sunday, representatives of the transit agency presented its union members with a final offer based on the two-year framework the union had requested, according to a press release.

 

 

There will be no interruption in transportation services on Monday, it said further.

"We remain committed to good faith negotiations with the union for a contract, and we hope the union will return to the bargaining table to resume discussions over a longer-term agreement," SEPTA said in the news release.
