Rome bus and metro strike on 8 February

Rome faces a public transport strike on Monday morning.

Rome commuters can expect disruption to public transport services on Monday 8 February due to a four-hour strike called by various trade unions representing transport workers.

Programmed from 08.30 until 12.30, the strike is to affect Rome's network of buses, trams, metro and light-rail services Roma-Lido, Termini-Centocelle and Roma-Nord.

Unions say that the strike action is over a range of issues, from renewal of contracts to working conditions during the covid-19 pandemic, according to local media reports.
