Public transport strikes in Rome on Friday 7 August

Dual strike by ATAC and Roma Tpl.

Two public transport strikes are set to go ahead in the capital on Friday 7 August after mediation talks broke down between trade unions and the prefecture of Rome.

The strike actions by employees of Rome's public transport network ATAC and suburban bus company Roma Tpl are scheduled between 08.30 and 12.30 on Friday 7 August.

The strikes will affect ATAC buses, trams, metro and light rail services Roma-Lido, Roma-Giardinetti and Roma-Civitacastellana-Viterbo, as well as the suburban bus routes operated by Roma Tpl.

The stalled talks had been called by union bosses over the alleged threat of salary cuts for their workers.
