Some schools revert to online classes due to planned protests by transport operators

At least two schools reverted to online classes today (December 1), after some transport operators announced plans for a protest.


Reports are that students at the Cumberland High School in St. Catherine and the Denbigh High School in Clarendon were advised to stay home, due to the planned protests by the One Voice Group Taxi Association.


The group said the reasons for the strike are that taxi operators have been targeted by police, over the past few weeks, as well as a lack of response from the Government about the proposal for a traffic ticket payment plan.


Director of Communications for One Voice, Oscar Finnikin said only 10 percent of the workers adhered to the call.

Meantime, Principal of Denbigh High, Janice Julal said students were urged to stay home due to the planned protests and as such classes are being held online.
