Transit Cops Strike in Pennsylvania

SEPTA'S 219 unionized transit cops went on strike just 20 minutes after their final offer was rejected at a bargaining session. Richard Neal Jr., president of the Fraternal Order of Transit Police, said his union was striking over a "measly" 50-cent hourly raise. SEPTA's final offer of 15 cents an hour was "an insult," he said.
