News Release

From the Presidential Spokesperson – On the cancelled nationwide strike

We welcome the news that PISTON called off its nationwide jeepney strike scheduled on December 4 to 5.

We remain optimistic that PISTON will soon engage with the government, and support the implementation of the long-delayed PUV Modernization Program, which only aims to provide our commuters a safer, more reliable, convenient, environment-friendly, and dignified commuting experience.

On the online posts circulating that classes and work have been suspended nationwide because of the jeepney strike, there is no truth to that. There is no official announcement yet from the Office of the Executive Secretary regarding the suspension of classes and work.
