CBS Philly reports that SEPTA has come to contract terms with Regional Rail electric workers — but that negotiations remain “tense” with Regional Rail engineers.
If ratified, the electrical workers would get an 11.5 percent raise — this, after a four-year contract dispute.
CBS Philly reports on the engineers:
“We are aware that our brothers in the IBEW have resolved their dispute with SEPTA. However, we remain as far apart as we were when PEB 246 rendered its recommendations. I would not characterize the discussions as negotiations. Our discussions are best described as, ‘tense’,” Stephen J. Bruno, Vice President of Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers and Trainmen, said in a statement.
