LTOP: Most transport organizations reject a week-long strike.
The Liga ng Transportasyon at Operators sa Philippines (LTOP) has claimed that the groups representing the jeepney and bus industries do not support the continuing transport strike and has voiced optimism that it will eventually end before reaching its weekly goal.
LTOP national president Orlando Marquez stated in an interview that as of Monday midday, the strike was most noticeable in certain areas of Metro Manila but had little effect in numerous regions.
Even the more aggressive huge transport groups, according to him, have not publicly expressed support for the transport “welga.”
A number of bus operator groups, the Alliance of Concerned Transport Organizations (ACTO), the Alliance of Transport Operators and Drivers Association of the Philippines (ALTODAP), the Federation of Jeepney Operators and Drivers Association of the Philippines (FEJODAP), Stop & Go, and UV Express, among others, have also stated that they do not support attempts to shut down transportation, according to Marquez.
He said that the main strike organizer, Malayang Alyansa ng Bus Workers at Laborers para sa Karapatan sa Paggawa (MANIBELA), is a very minor transport organization and that its leadership has been “belligerent” against other key figures in the local transportation industry.
Marquez cautioned public utility drivers not to transport people to work and school in the morning and then join the strike later in the day in an effort to leave the general public stranded.
According to him, intentionally leaving passengers stranded is grounds for having your franchise revoked. “Your franchise is a privilege issued so you may perform a public service,” he continued.
According to reports, MANIBELA’s proposal for a transport strike is primarily motivated by the requirement that public transportation vehicles be modernized.
Nonetheless, Marquez claimed that since transportation modernization has been repeatedly postponed, it is high time it did so.
According to him, LTOP is in favor of using more ecologically friendly and fuel-efficient engines that meet Filipino National Standards.
Marquez, however, revealed that the LTOP’s sole demand is that jeepneys be let to have their “iconic design,” which hasn’t altered in more than 70 years, despite modernization.***
