There will be no newspapers until 27 December due to a three-day strike and the traditional Christmas break, the Italian journalist trade union (Fnsi) has announced. Newspaper, magazine, agency and web journalists as well as press officers are striking 21-23 December due to the continued failure of editors to come to an agreement with Fnsi over the national contract for journalists. The industrial action will prevent newspapers from appearing on 22, 23 and 24 December, followed by a two-day pause for Christmas. Some right-wing newspapers and free press may still be available during the strike period.
