Serious traffic disruptions expected in Italy
A strike at all Italian ports has been planned to take place on May 23.
Italian labour unions of transport employees (F.I.L.T.-C.G.I.L, FIT-CISL and Uiltrasporti) have called for a 24-hour national strike to protest against a decision to stop negotiations on the renewal of a collective labour agreement for the transport sector. In particular, unions object to cost cuts at the ports, which have a negative impact on port employees, both financially and in terms of working conditions and safety.
