Cebu Jeepney Strike

Nagkahiusang Drayber sa Sugbo (Nadsu) held a transport strike Monday 3-6-09 to voice out their demand on fare nationwide fare rates.

Nadsu secretary-general Ruben Rama said they intend to totally paralyze the public transportation system in major routes in the cities of Cebu, Mandaue, Lapu-Lapu and Talisay and in the towns of Liloan and Consolacion in the north and Minglanilla in the south., By Jhunnex Napallacan Visayas Bureau First Posted 16:21:00 06/29/2008

Yes, its Monday and first day of the finals week. Since my boarding house is not far away from school and thus its a walking distance, I did not know that there is this strike. I was only informed after a classmate called our teacher that he might be late for there are no jeepneys or taxis in Guadalupe, and I realize that it was really kind of serious when we are about to go to Ayala and there were no jeepneys, so we have to stay around Ramos. Unfortunate for those who live away from Velez.

I think these jeepney drivers should be heared by the government, so my classmates could come to school. Or if they want to hold a strike, can you make it like "No classes" or "Educational Strike: Let all students pass major subjects" hehehe

What can you say bout this transport strike?
