Meanwhile, the suspension of work in the private sector will be subject to the discretion of employers.

The work and class suspension is announced amid the anticipated nationwide transport strike or tigil pasada on Monday.

Transport group Pagkakaisa ng mga Samahan ng mga Tsuper at Operators Nationwide (Piston) will spearhead the two-day strike  in protest to the planned phaseout of old jeepneys and modernization program of the Department of Transportation (DOTr).

Prior to the announcement from the Palace, some local government units (LGUs) have already announced class suspension to minimize inconveniences to affected commuters, especially students.  Other LGUs like Davao City will also offer free bus rides to affected passengers.
