No talks scheduled in Philly transit negotiations

PHILADELPHIA - As a strike threat looms, Philadelphia's public transit agency says it has made its final contract offer to union employees.

Jerri Williams, a spokeswoman for the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, says no bargaining is scheduled for Monday.

Thousands of members of the Transport Workers Union are working without a contract.

Sunday's midnight deadline passed without a walkout. At the time, union president Willie Brown said riders could feel comfortable about having transit service ``for a while.''

A union spokesman did not immediately return a request for comment Monday.

A work stoppage would affect all city transit lines as well as suburban buses and trolleys. They provide about 900,000 daily trips.

Williams says SEPTA is waiting to hear from the union.
