THE UNIVERSITY will shift to online classes from March 6 to 12 due to the planned week-long transport strike against jeepney modernization, the Office of the Secretary General announced. 

In a circular dated March 2, Secretary General Fr. Louie Coronel, O.P. said all students would attend virtual classes next week, except those who need to use on-campus University facilities and internships.

Teachers who will still conduct on-site classes must coordinate with their program heads, while internships will proceed as scheduled, depending on work arrangements imposed by training facilities.

University services will also shift online, but University staff must follow the directives of the following offices on work arrangements:

  • Office of the Vice Rector for UST officials
  • Human Resource Department for support staff
  • Office of the Vice Rector for Academic Affairs for teaching and non-teaching staff

Several transport groups announced plans to hold a week-long transport strike after the Land Transportation Franchising and Regulatory Board (LTFRB) released a memorandum requiring individual operators of traditional jeepneys to join a cooperative or corporation by June 30 to continue plying their routes.

On March 1, the LTFRB extended the deadline for the requirement to Dec. 31, 2023. H.J.V. Andaya
