Protesting Pampanga truckers to resume work after compromise – Pineda
Pampanga Governor Dennis Pineda on Wednesday said the dispute between quarry truckers who barricaded a portion of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and NLEX Corp. and government agencies had been peacefully resolved.
He said the protesting truckers pledged to return to work after reaching an agreement with NLEX Corp., the Land Transportation Agency and the Department of Public Works and Highways.
“Gaya po ng aking ipinangako, naayos ko na ang problema ng mga quarry truckers na binarikadahan ang NLEX noong Sabado bilang protesta sa ban na dumaan sa tollway,” Pineda said.
“Nito pong Miyerkules, November 11, ay inulit nila ang kanilang commitment na magputol ng sidings ng trucks bilang patunay na walang overloading,” the governor said.
“Pumayag naman po ang LTO, DPWH at NLEX Corp.,” Pineda said.
“Bukas po ay magtitimbang ang NLEX Corp. ng mga truck na putol na ang sidings at flat ang kargang buhangin. Lalagyan po namin ng sticker ang nagcomply sa allowable load na 13.5 tons base sa axle,” he said.
On November 7, Pineda interceded to put a stop to the standoff after haulers of Mt. Pinatubo sand and gravel barricaded nine NLEX toll gates with 150 trucks on Saturday morning, according to reports.
