Italy's public transport strike on Friday postponed until 9 October

Trade union abandons plan for Friday walkout.

Italy's USB trade union has called off its planned 24-hour public transport strike on Friday 29 September after the government stepped in to limit the industrial action to four hours.

 

The decision to postpone the nationwide strike until Monday 9 October came after Italy's transport minister Matteo Salvini issued an injunction to reduce the time-frame of the dispute.

 

"Four hours is not enough for workers to assert their rights", the union said in a statement on Wednesday, stressing that the strike on 9 October would be for 24 hours.

 

The strike action will affect local public transport services in Rome and cities across Italy.
