No classes in Albay on Oct 16 due to Bicol-wide transport strike
LEGAZPI CITY – The provincial government of Albay has announced the suspension of classes on Tuesday, October 16, in anticipation of a region-wide transport strike.
Albay Gov. Al Francis Bichara said in a public announcement on social media that classes in all levels of public and private schools will be suspended as Concerned Drivers and Operators (Condor-Piston) carry out their transport strike in Bicol.
Ramon Rescovilla, secretary general of Condor-Piston Bicol, said in a previous interview that the strike of public utility jeepneys will run for 24 hours.
Condor-Piston will stage the transport strike to demand the government to lower the prices of petroleum products. /kga
