Rome Public Transportation Workers to Strike on Tuesday

Wanted in Rome is reporting that travelers in the Eternal City will be affected by a 24-hour national public transport strike scheduled for Tuesday, October 2. 

In Rome the strike will involve all of the city's public transport, including the bus company ATAC, Roma Tpl suburban services and Cotral coach routes, as well as trams, A and B metro lines, the Rome-Giardinetti and Rome-Civitacastellana-Viterbo light rail links. 

The strike follows the usual timetable: from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and from 8 p.m. until end of service, with commuters guaranteed public transport during peak travel times in the morning and evening. Some of the capital’s night bus services will be at risk on the night of October 1. 

The action has been called by trade unions representing public transport workers seeking the renewal of the national collective agreement (CCNL) which defends employment levels and working hours but also protects salaries from inflation.
