President Barack Obama on Saturday put union workers in Philadelphia’s commuter rail strike back on the job, granting Pennsylvania Gov. Tom Corbett’s request to create a presidential emergency board to mediate the contract dispute. Obama ordered the establishment of the three-member board effective at 12:01 a.m. Sunday. He called for “a swift and smooth resolution” of the dispute between the Southeast Pennsylvania Transportation Authority and its engineers and electricians unions.
More than 400 workers went on strike Saturday June 14th at midnight.
