Trade unions in Italy have called a 24-hour public transport strike on Friday 16th June. The strike, which will affect Rome’s commuters, is in protest against privatisation in the sector.
The walk-out may disrupt regional trains and local sea travel, as well as the capital’s buses and metro services, which are expected to run as normal only before 08:30, and between 17:00 and 20:00.
The air sector will be affected by the industrial action although Italy’s civil aviation authority ENAC has assures travellers that flights will operate as scheduled between 07:00 and 10:00, and 18:00 and 21:00.
Intercontinental flights or connections to Italian islands with only one daily service are not expected to experience any disruption as a result of the strike.
