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.

About this blog
Every year, city government spends slightly more than $4 billion. Where does all that money come from? More importantly, where does it go? Are we getting the most bang for our tax buck? “It's Our Money” is a joint project between Philadelphia Daily News and WHYY, funded by the William Penn Foundation, designed to answer these questions.
