Transit Talks To Continue Amid Progress

PHILADELPHIA -- The Philadelphia transit system and its largest union will be back at the negotiating table this evening.

The union, which was threatening to strike ahead of Game 3 of the World Series, has agreed to keep talking.

Officials with Philadelphia's transit agency are reporting continued progress.

Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority spokeswoman Jerri Williams says negotiations have stopped for the night but are scheduled to resume at 6 p.m. Sunday.

Williams says Gov. Ed Rendell has been "very instrumental" in moving the talks along.

Willie Brown, president of the Transport Workers Union Local 234, said the union agreed to remain in the talks as long as the governor was involved and that he hoped for an agreement soon.

Talks resume at 6 p.m.
