Members of Transport Workers Union Local 234 say they're at too great a risk of contracting COVID-19, and they're planning to get SEPTA's attention on Thursday if more safeguards aren't put into place.
“If SEPTA does not meet our demands, we will take a job action. You will come to work, but we will take a job action,” he said.
Brown did not specify what that “job action” would be. The union told The Philadelphia Inquirer it wants a four days on, three days off schedule to increase social distancing.
SEPTA responded in a statement, saying it is “committed to continuing a dialogue with TWU Local 234 and all other unions representing SEPTA employees.”
