Sun.Star Cebu - - NATION -

Mayor Sarah Duterte-Car­pio has sus­pended classes in all lev­els in Davao City as trans­port groups join the na­tion­wide strike on Mon­day. In an­tic­i­pa­tion of lack of pub­lic util­ity ve­hi­cles dur­ing the strike, she or­dered the de­ploy­ment of buses to cater to stranded com­muters. While she re­spected the planned trans­port strike on Mon­day, Duterte-Car­pio urged pro­test­ers to prac­tice self-re­straint in their ac­tions as the au­thor­i­ties would not tol­er­ate crimes that would be com­mit­ted dur­ing the strike. Trans­mis­sion Pis­ton will lead the trans­port strike in Davao to dra­ma­tize their op­po­si­tion to the pub­lic util­ity ve­hi­cle mod­ern­iza­tion pro­gram. Trans­mis­sion Pis­ton Davao sees that ma­jor­ity of other driv­ers’ and op­er­a­tors’ groups will join the strike. But Trans­mis­sion Pis­ton chair in Davao Char­ito Junares said Davao City’s strike would only be one day. In Metro Manila and other re­gions, driv­ers would hold a two-day trans­port strike.
