(SPOT.ph) Students, prepare your uniforms for on-site classes: Some schools and local government units said they would resume face-to-face classes starting Thursday, March 9, after transport groups ended its nationwide strike following a dialogue in Malacanang.
Jeepney and UV drivers who joined the strike will return to the roads again after just two days of transport holiday after the Palace agreed to their request to scrap the phaseout of traditional jeepneys as part of the PUV Modernization Program, groups PISTON and Manibela said. The nationwide transport strike was originally slated to last a week, or until Saturday, March 12.
