This newest one could happen as early as next weekend unless action is taken.

SEPTA’s railroad engineers authorized a strike, which could start as early as June 14, unless President Obama appoints a board to investigate the ongoing labor dispute.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the union voted by a 166-2 margin to approve a strike. More than 400 engineers and electrical workers could strike when a 30-day cooling off period ends June 14 but it would be delayed by 240 if President Obama appoints a board to investigate the labor dispute.
