Rome public transport strike on 5 December

24-hour strike in Rome scheduled for Tuesday 5 December.

The latest strike by Rome's public transport company ATAC is scheduled on Tuesday 5 December, from 08.30 until 17.00 and from 20.00 until end of service.

The strike will affect Rome’s buses, trams, metro and light rail services Roma-Lido, Roma-Viterbo and Termini-Centocelle, as well as routes operated by the suburban bus company Roma TPL.

However public transport services will run as normal from 05.30-08.30 and from 17.00-20.00.

The USB trade union says the strike has been called in protest against the "reliance on the services on private firms which do not guarantee minimum rights, such as supplementary social security payments."

Public transport workers are also planning a demonstration at the Campidoglio at 15.00 on 5 December.

Several of the most recent public transport strikes in Rome have been reduced at the last minute. For strike details see ATAC website.
