Palace: Gov't work, classes in all levels suspended on October 16

Jeepneys in Cebu City Philippines

As the transport strike is expected to pose problems for commuters, Malacañang has suspended classes at all levels in public and private schools nationwide, as well as work in government offices.

"The CJ (Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno) has suspended work in all courts nationwide tomorrow, Oct 16, due to the scheduled nationwide transport strike", the SC Public Information Office posted on its Twitter account.

The message from the Palace, however, clarified the suspension will not include Tuesday.

The private sector workers, however, are not covered by the suspension but their employers have the authority to issue a similar order.

The Pinagkaisang Samahan ng mga Tsuper at Operator Nationwide (PISTON) and Stop and Go Coalition earlier announced that they would be joining the transport strike to protest the government's plan to phase out jeepneys aged 15 years and older.

"Duterte has not only rejected our demand to junk the previous Aquino administration's PUJ phaseout program, he is now even rushing its implementation to complete the monopoly takeover of our livelihood by his big business cronies and foreign auto industry giants", San Mateo said in a statement.
