No suspension of classes in CamSur; jeepney strike still a go in Bicol


NAGA CITY — After the Pinagkaisang Samahan ng mga Tsuper at operator Nationwide (Piston) called off the two-day nationwide transport strike which was initially set on Monday and Tuesday, Camarines Sur governor Miguel “Migz” Villafuerte lifted the suspension of classes in the province on Sunday afternoon.

On a post in his official Facebook account, the governor revoked yesterday’s announcement saying suspension of classes and work in government offices on Monday was lifted due to Piston’s earlier declaration.

However, Piston Bicol will still push through with its two-day transport strike according to Ramon Excovilla, the group’s executive director.

Meanwhile, in Albay, classes are still suspended on Monday according to Governor Francis Bichara in his own posted announcement on Facebook.

On the other hand, Naga City, an independent component city in Camarines Sur, did not suspend classes despite the looming transport strike. /je
