Salvini orders 24-hour strike to be cut to four hours.
The Italian government has reduced to four hours a planned 24-hour strike affecting local public transport services in Rome and cities across Italy on Friday 29 September.
The strike action was cut to four hours after Italy's transport minister and deputy premier Matteo Salvini stepped in by issuing an injunction on Wendesday morning.
The industrial dispute has been called by the USB trade union representing public transport workers.
The planned strike action will affect bus, subway and tram services, with strike timetables varying from city to city.
