Trade unions representing workers for Rome’s public transport company ATAC are planning to hold a strike on Monday, December 9. The work stoppage is scheduled to take place from 10:00 to 14:00 (local time) and is expected to affect bus, rail, and tram service. According to union leaders, ATAC has failed to address employee issues including increased workloads, holiday denial, lack of buses, and safety problems.
System-wide transportation disruptions and an increased demand for alternative transportation are to be expected.
Individuals in Rome are advised to monitor developments, anticipate disruptions and an increased demand for alternative transportation, and budget extra time to reach their destinations for the duration of the strike.
