4:03 am
train. no carbon the trains, no getting on, you won't be able to get on the train unless you have that ticket in advance. and try for the flex hours, even septa said yesterday, they thought that that would probably be your best bet, if you can push your start time until after say 9:30 or so, i think you'll be in good shape. you got the flat rate in the parking garages, $10 for ten hours. down here in center city. and outside we go to early morning closure of the schuylkill expressway, all westbound lanes are blocked, from university into center city, because after overnight construction project. they should be out of here by about 5:00 a.m. and what's it look i can like for another wednesday morning septa commute, sue? >> looks like the weather is not going to give you any problems, so at least there is that. take a look at the number of the day, once again a ten. yes, this will be even warmer than we were yesterday. so, we head, there you go, to ultimate doppler radar, and
4:04 am
once again, skies are clear. so off to cool start again this morning. but milder than yesterday. 52 degrees to get you started, 86 percent relative humidity, more humid today, and in the 40's in mount pocono. you remember we were well below freezing at this time yesterday. 46 degrees allentown, 52 as we said in philadelphia, 49 degrees in wildwood. so these are the temperatures as you are walking out the door. won't be windy waiting for your ride this morning or maybe riding your bike. plan on high temperature every 73 degrees, sunset time some 5:57. so as we said, thomas, karen, the weather at least is not going to give you any problems. >> certainly one bright spot. sue, thank youment time now 4:04, contract talks between union leaders and septa expected to pick back up later this morning. >> both sides say working very hard at this one. out to lauren johnson, joining us from where they are negotiate to go see if we've had nip movement, any offers. what's the latest? >> reporter: good morning, septa and local 234 union
4:05 am
which reps the employees met here at the sheridan until about 1:00 this morning when they decided to call it quit. also expected to resume again later this morning, so, did they make any frog rest yesterday? it depends on who you ask. two sides apparently didn't even sit face-to-face until late yesterday evening. representative bob brady showed up here at the sheridan. brady brought leaders from the city, septa, the union together to sit down, brady played big role in the 2009 septa strike, six day stoppage, said he's begin ready to help between the union and see what septa is offering. >> back and forth. all in the hotel. which is a good thing, not going to get nothing done unless they are talking, and they are talking, different pro poe's as. i'm not sure where the ball is right now but they're going back and forth with their proposals. good thing. you never settle anything if you're not talking. but they are talking.
4:06 am
>> the president of the union said his fight is for the workers who deserve secure retirement and quality workplace. the major issues as we continue to hear are pensions and work rules relate to go safety, in the next half hour we'll look at what both sides are saying about the sticking points to get city services rolling again once they meet back here at the sheridan, thomas, karen? >> checking back with you all morning long, lauren johnson, thank you. don't forget to send in your questions, hashtag fox 29 septa, could be answering questions all morning long. let's continue our team coverage of the septa strike. >> right out to steve keeley at the fernrock station with a look at how the commute is going to go on this morning, good morning, steve. >> reporter: well, before we hit these closer record high temperatures in the afternoon the next couple of days, it is very, very cold. the overnight hours, they still have the fire burning on the picket lines, both in the barrels and in the bellies of the striking workers, determined to stay out until they get what they think they
4:07 am
deserve so. we're outside the fernrock station, think this time of day usually quiet, maybe stragglier on the normally running subway, but no subways running, and then greg will come back out to where we are, look down the street, and you can see on both sides of the street we still have available parking, and the parking lot just couple of cars in it right now. the question is, how packed is this going to be, for the regional rails, than is one of the last stops before you get into sent city. usually when the trains comes in here, already packed, tough to find a seat on normal day. and you got to wonder are the trains going to bypass here, are they going to get canceled because of some strike situation, that the strikers have planned, or are they going to just be too full to stop and pick up anybody else, and have a bunch of commuters left waiting and late again today. look at the video from yesterday. here's what bob kelly was talking about in the afternoon rush hour, the reginald rail was the story of the afternoon, where the car traffic was the story of both the morning and the afternoon. but the regional rail, this is
4:08 am
what used to be called market eels, sold the name naming rights, jefferson station, the money from the naming rights didn't get too far since we are at another strike, even though they got another way of getting some income stream for septa, and the people here completely frustrated last night, a lot of them gave up waiting. then they would go to try to hail a cab, the cab company told us over an hour wait for the cab to go home if that's your alternate means. talked to some of the come caught ers wondering how they'll survive this. >> hope septa does their part, make sure all of the trains are running the best as possible, we all get on. >> i doubt will happen, i can see by the lines, but we'll see. today is the first day. deal with it. can't get upset. >> how is this affecting your commute? what do you have to do today? >> usually would have probably been almost home. but we'll just drive tomorrow. that will be easier. >> today i'm calm. but, i mean, this continues to
4:09 am
happen, you know, it could be become a little bit frustrating. >> well, there is the regional rail board, a lot of lathes, a lot of concellations on there, especially, for the earlier trains, for the early trains they were canceled because strikers kept the staff that run the reginald rail trains away from the rail yards because they had picked lines set up. then septa went to court and got an injunction against that. well you heard that woman there, karen, thomas, say we're in the going to do this tomorrow. we're going to drive. that's why police think as bad as yesterday was yesterday morning where we had gridlock, driving back from your location, karen, usually two comes at main end sections, but traffic even worse today. all of the people that got frustrated with the regional rail line will hop in their cars, and add to cars on the roads this morning, to make it even worse than yesterday. soap, bob, that's going to be the story, broad street, a all of the main streets, main
4:10 am
intersections, gridlocked, and the cons will try to keep them from getting gridlocked. almost hard to do when people just refuse to let people in front of them it, let them turn in, let them join the crowd, and where are you going to park all of the parking lots, all of the parking garages filling up as women. so earlier commute for the people smart enough to know, leave early and maybe grab a spot in one of the few garages and lots where they are going to be spots available, guys? >> steve, thank you, i think you're right on all of those count. the time 4:10. very sad news to report this morning. harold hairston, our first after can american to serve as fire commissioner, he died. according to philly.com he died yesterday at his home in west mt. airy, the former commissioner, former fire commissioner was appointed the head of the fire department in 1992 by mayor ed rendell, served for 12 years, until he retired in 2004. they've not released the circumstances surrounding his death. he was 76 years old. here is a statement from our mayor jim kenney. he said i'm deeply saddened by
4:11 am
the news of commissioner hairston's passing, he was a dedicated firefighter and outstanding commissioner. he left a lasting impact on the department and our city. my thoughts and prayers are with his family. >> leaving quite the legacy. time 4:11, following developing story this morning, fresh off their lost against dallas, another blow to the birds. josh huff has been arrested. police say they caught him speeding in a walt whitman bridge with marijuana and gun around 11:00 tuesday morning, now charged with possessing unloaded handgun without a permit and small amount of marijuana. also found in the car, hollow point bullet, hoff was row least from the jail, after posting bond. the eagles organization has not said much about the incident, they released this statement that reads: we are aware of the incident today involving josh huff, at this point we are gathering moring in, by the way huff expected to arrive at practice this morning. >> happening today, comedian bill cosby back in court for day two of his pretrial
4:12 am
hearing. his lawyers will get another chance to argue that his sexual assault case should be thrown out, also to challenge the accusations of 13 women who will be testifying again him. they would like the comedian's damaging deposition in a decade old lawsuit thrown out. this trial, that's what his lawyers want. cosby accused of drugging and assaulting temple employ employee, and meanwhile, prosecutors say they'll show pattern of cosby drugging and assaulting women. >> he knew that they were not able to consent to any kind of sexual act, that they would be incapacitated, unable to consent. >> cosby says he was told that deposition would never be used against him in a criminal proceeding. if convicted co-face ten years behind bars. all right, the time right now, 4:12. take a look at this. in candy, what's happening now? a sewing needle inside some halloween candy? where this happened and what authorities are asking everyone to do.

4:34 am
union wants a mandatory 14-hour period between shift. instead of the current nine-hour requirement. and the union said the five minute breaks promise in the their contracts are not always honored. they want that break extended to ten minute. then there are pensions, which almost caused a strike in 2014, but the union held off, hoping for more equity. that hasn't happened yesterday. union members upset with pension cap for workers, but saying the same rules don't apply to managers. >> right now, it is all about pensions, you know, right now it is all about pensions. here is a box. and gout to try to figure out if the b count, try to stay within the box and that's what they're trying to do. >> well, it sounds like both sides in addition to city leaders, sat down late last night, called it quits around 1:00 this morning, everyone is expected back here at the sheridan, this morning, to resume talks. and the next hour, we are going to talk about how this could affect election day, and which candidate could be impacted the most. karen, thomas? >> a loft people looking ahead

4:36 am
strike, when only the regional rails are running, all of the subway users also want to use the regional rail line to get into the city. than is one of the last stops from all of those suburban station going in the city. so the trains already packed, by the time they get here, then they'll have two sets of riders trying to find available space on the trains. and we're already starting to see the first commuters show up even though the first trains don't show up to about 5:45. and karen, thomas, what i've learn from septa, that they'll do today, have a person down there on the platform, selling tickets, and so nobody can buy them at the station, and then a police officer keeping guards of that person, and so they're going have people buy the tickets instead of the conductor found them on the train, because the train is so crazy, and buy the tickets on the platform, and hopefully, finds a seat on that train. so we will join you from the platform when we see you next in a half hour as things start to pick up for day two, and we'll see what the headline every day two is. the headline on the metro, i think this says it all. septa stress, use that for
