MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Education (DepEd) will not announce the cancellation of classes despite next week’s transportation strike.

Pingakaisang Samahan ng mga Tsuper and Operators Nationwide earlier announced that its members will carry out a three-day nationwide transport strike starting on Monday, November 20.

In Saturday’s advisory, DepED said the decision to cancel classes would be up to local government units.

“The Department of Education will not make any decisions to cancel classes,” he said.

“Unless local government units announce the cancellation and/or suspension of classes in their area, schools will conduct classes without disruption,” he added.
