Septa's largest union has set an emergency strike meeting tonight.
So far there's been no authorization to strike by members of local 234, which represents about 5500 bus drivers, subway, trolley workers and mechanics.
Today both sides will be back at the bargaining table to negotiate and hopefully avoid a work stoppage.
The last of three union contracts expires at midnight on Sunday.
Septa Spokesman states, "Although SEPTA management still hopes to avoid a work stoppage, we are preparing updated materials to advise the public what service will be available if the city and suburban divisions of TWU 234 decide to strike on April 7. This material will be, mostly likely, released on Friday."
Rain at times expected tonight, Friday, and early Saturday. Another fall-like blast of cool weather to follow for the weekend.
Expect unsettled weather through Saturday morning as waves of showers and thunderstorms move through the area. Some of the storms may bring heavy downpours later this afternoon.
It's still muggy out there. Things start to change tomorrow afternoon, as the rain clears out, and much cooler air moves in making it feel more like fall. Sunday is nice with a cool breeze and unseasonably low temperatures which last though early next week.
