Work, classes suspension on Dec. 3-4 due to strike? Here’s what Palace has to say
Will it be deja vu all over again for the public on the forthcoming transport strike on December 3 and 4?
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said the decision will be based on the magnitude of the transport strike.
“Kung nag-desisyon ang Palasyo dati na kanselahin ang klase kasi hindi pa siguro alam ng gobyerno kung ganong kalawak ‘yung suporta at ayaw nilang magkaroon ng aberya ang ating mga mag-aaral,” Roque said.
“So ganyan po ‘yung konteksto nanaman na gagawa ng desisyon ang gobyerno, gagawin ang lahat para maprotektahan ang mananakay sa kahit anong aberya na magiging resulta ng transport strike,” he added.
He meanwhile reminded holders of public franchise and conveniences that they are not allowed to join the rally as per the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board.
“Therefore, expect that their participation will come with the legal consequences ‘no as far as the award of the certificate of public convenience is concerned,” he stressed.
Militant group Piston is set to hold its fourth transport strike next week to protest the government’s jeepney modernization program.
