“On November 8, 2016, hundreds of thousands of Philadelphians will cast ballots for President, Senator, and other important offices. The City has a legal responsibility to ensure that Philadelphians can exercise their constitutional right to vote,” said City Solicitor Sozi Pedro Tulante.

He went on to say an Election-Day strike will make it very hard for many Philadelphians to participate in this election.

“While there is still time for SEPTA and TWU to resolve the strike before Election Day, the Law Department must act now to ensure that as many Philadelphia residents as possible can vote without disruption. As a result, we are asking the Court for temporary relief.”

The City is not taking a position on the merits of SEPTA’s broader request for a permanent injunction. That court hearing is scheduled to resume Monday morning.
