Strike postponed, drivers to pitch in P20 for Yolanda victims

Transmision-PISTON spokesperson Edil Gonzaga said their group will be calling public utility drivers to “chip-in” a minimum of P20 to this cause.
“We agreed to a P20 each for starters per driver, excluding other forms of relief such as food items and clothing. They are more than happy to give, as they can earn it in only a day since the transport strike was postponed,” said Gonzaga.
