A labor agreement for Philadelphia transit workers has been ratified overwhelmingly by union members.

Transport Workers Union Local 234 spokesman Bob Wolper said Friday night that 2,806 members voted to ratify the pact. Another 242 voted against it.

Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority buses, subways and trolleys began running again Nov. 9 when a tentative agreement was reached, ending a strike that took up much of the previous week. The ratification ends the possibility of another strike.
