Pennsylvania's Republican governor called on President Barack Obama on Saturday to intervene to end a transit strike in the greater Philadelphia area and force the two sides to negotiate. The move by Governor Tom Corbett came hours after about 440 engineers and electricians who operate trains that connect Philadelphia and its suburbs walked off the job. The strike began at 12:01 a.m. on Saturday, when a mandatory 30-day cooling off period expired in contract talks between the workers' unions and SEPTA. less
