Italy cannot consider this Monday a success. On October 11, a round-the-clock transport strike was announced. Many independent trade unions are protesting.
The strike was announced in Italy under the slogan of demands to improve wage and safety conditions at work, and to strengthen the public transport fleet.
Italy faces strikes
Moreover, it is a protest against the policies of Mario Draghi government. According to the unionists, the burden of the country’s problems has shifted to the shoulders of the workers.
In Rome, a demonstration of trade unionists was organized in the center, which added to the problems of traffic jams on the streets. One metro line is down and the other two have a limited number of trains. Difficulties have also been noted in other cities of the country. A metro station in Naples is closed.
Most importantly, the strike organizers worked to ensure that public transportation was operating during the morning and afternoon rush hours.
