Bus, tram and metro strike on 24 January – News

The first national transport strike of 2024 proclaimed by the grassroots unions began at 8.30: today public transport is at risk. Currently in Rome the AB-B1 metro lines – Atac says – continue the service, but are in delay in travel. As well as Termini-Centocelle. On Metro A the Furio Camillo, Re di Roma and Barberini stations closed due to strike. The C line service continues and is regular. While reductions in trips, or interruptions, are possible until 5pm for surface transport. All updates on the atac.roma.it website.

Regular service on metro line 1, same situation for the Centrale, Mergellina and Montesanto funiculars. Partially reduced service for buses and trams. These are the effects of the 24-hour strike, proclaimed for today by USB, on the public transport front managed by the Neapolitan Mobility Company (Anm) in the Neapolitan capital. More significant inconveniences for EAV users on the lines connecting the city and the province: the Cumana and Circumflegrea railways are currently closed.

The strike was called by the grassroots unions. “Salary, safety and rights”, these are the slogans underlying the strike of the road and tram drivers, underlined by the trade unions Cobas Lavoro Privato, Cub Trasporti, Usb, Adl, Sgb, Cobas and Orsa workers associations, pointing out that it will also take place a demonstration in front of the Ministry of Transport, led by Matteo Salvini, from 10.30 am.

During the strike, the service will be guaranteed during the legal periods: from the start of the daytime service at 8.29am and from 5pm to 7.59pm. In Rome the strike will affect the entire Atac network and the Cotral network, a local extra-urban public transport company in the Lazio region. In Lombardy, workers of the infrastructure manager Ferrovienord could also join the strike, with repercussions on the service offered by Trenord, the latter said. In Naples, in addition to buses, trams and metro, the stop will also affect the three funiculars: Mergellina, Centrale and Montesanto.

On the same day on Wednesday there will also be inconveniences for those who fly: ENAV staff from Brindisi ACC, Bologna and Verona will stop for four hours. Due to this unrest, Ita Airways “was forced to cancel 8 domestic flights”, the company informs on its website.

“These are all strikes that USB calls in defense of the idea of ​​scheduled and non-scheduled public service” therefore “against the disinvestment policy by the institutions, the rush to sell out to private individuals and multinationals, for contractual platforms that demand increases adequate wages together with humane working hours and adequate levels of safety, to guarantee workers and users”, explains the union acronym. For the moment, no comment from the Minister of Transport and Infrastructure Matteo Salvini. In previous strikes he had intervened with injunctions, four such actions from last July to December, causing the anger of the unions to explode.
