PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — Negotiations to avert a strike that would affect SEPTA bus, trolley, and subway riders are continuing Monday morning.

.

The talks at the Sheraton Philadelphia Downtown Hotel in Center City, which went on through the weekend, were described as tense.

.

5,700 of SEPTA’s unionized workers are threatening to go on strike. At issue are healthcare, pension and non-economic issues like schedules, break times and driver fatigue.

.

The union’s contract ends Monday at midnight, and at 12:01 Tuesday morning, a massive strike could begin that would impact over 400,000 riders.

.

Buses, trolley and subway lines would shut down just one week before Election Day.

.

However, Regional Rail lines would not be impacted.

.

The union and SEPTA officials also spent Saturday trying to come to an agreement. Talks abruptly ended in what one source described to Action News as “tense negotiations.”

.

Caught in the middle are more than 400,000 riders who depend on the transit system.

.

“They deserve what they’re asking for, but I just wish that with the election coming up and everything, people having to get to work and school, that they can work it out and they don’t have to go on strike,” said Roberta Summers of West Philadelphia.

.

Frustration is building for SEPTA riders who are nervously waiting for work on what’s going to happen.
