    SEPTA to negotiate new contracts with majority of workforce

    September 27, 2023 // Considered “one of the most strike-prone large transit systems in the country,” SEPTA may face difficult negotiations and the potential for strikes due to the fund restrictions. Further complicating the issue is the sheer number of collective bargaining agreements that must be negotiated. “SEPTA is committed to continuing good-faith discussions toward reaching agreements that are fair to employees and fiscally responsible to farepayers and taxpayers,” SEPTA spokesperson Andrew Busch said. While each unit will bargain over individual issues, most will tackle issues related to worker shortages, pay increases, and hazard pay.
