Governor Wolf Statement on Agreement Reached Between SEPTA and TWU
November 07, 2016
Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today released the following statement regarding the agreement reached by SEPTA and TWU:
“I am pleased that SEPTA and TWU have reached an agreement and the City of Philadelphia’s transit system will be fully operational within 24 hours. While I am beyond disappointed the situation ever resulted in a strike that affected the daily lives of hundreds of thousands of Pennsylvanians, I commend both sides for bringing this crippling work stoppage to an end. I especially thank Representative Dwight Evans for his tireless work to reach a resolution.
“The strike caused severe economic hardship because so many rely on transit service including the elderly and individuals with disabilities, as well as those who need transit to travel to work, school, and medical appointments. Now, these individuals can return to their normal daily commutes without the anxiety of disruption and the workers can return to their job and continue this important service for the people of Pennsylvania.”
