Union spokesman: No agreement to end strike

Rumors that striking SEPTA workers will be returning to the job are false, according to a spokesman for Transportation Workers Union Local 234. Bob Wolper, who handles media relations for the union, says a press conference scheduled for 5:30pm is not to announce a settlement.

“It's going to be an update on contract negotiations,” said Wolper. “And provide information on our meeting with the governor. It's pretty hard to have a settlement when we haven't even met with SEPTA today.”

The union will be meeting with Gov. Rendell at 4pm. A location for the meeting has not been announced.
