SEPTA Authorizes Strike

Today SEPTA TWU 234 authorized their union to call a strike. While no strike deadline has been set there is some possibility that a strike action could affect the World Series next weekend, although past history has shown that a strike threat can loom for weeks before the balloon finally goes up.

During the last strike in November 2oo5 the BCGP counted bicycles on the Walnut Street Bridge and found a 90% increase in bike traffic over the normal fall counts taken that year in September and October.

The union will call the strike at the end of this week if there is no new contract.
