Transport groups, headed by PISTON, have declared a national transport strike on Monday in protest of the government’s continued drive to phase out jeepneys. They are also protesting the high fuel prices brought about by the TRAIN law.

“Sa Hunyo 25, 2018, 8:00 ng umaga, magtipon tayo sa harap ng Petron gas station sa East Avenue kanto ng NIA Road, para mag-martsa sa LTFRB!” said the consolidated group of Pinagkaisang Samahan ng mga Tsuper at Operator Nationwide (PISTON), No To Jeepney Phase Out Coalition (NTJPOC) and several consumer groups.

It is the same group that declared a transport and jeepney strike last March, prompting the government to suspend classes and work in government offices.
