The government is seeking an injunction against some 200 Alitalia employees, mainly pilots and flight assistants, after a 24-hour wildcat strike between 10 and 11 Nov. The strike was declared at 17.00 on 10 November to begin one hour later, in violation of a law requiring a minimum ten days notice of strikes involving essential public services. The labour unions themselves did not taken part in the strike and have issued statements condemning it. Alitalia was forced to cancel over 100 flights between 10 and 11 Nov mostly at Rome Fiumicino, Milan Linate and Milan Malpensa.
