Unions have called for a transportation strike to take place throughout Italy on Thursday, October 25, and Friday, October 26. Rail workers at Trenitalia, Italo NTV, and Trenord will strike from 21:00 (local time) on October 25 to 21:00 on October 26. Unions have also called for public transportation workers in cities throughout Italy to strike for 24 hours on October 26. Should the work stoppage go ahead as planned, significant transportation disruptions are expected throughout Italy on October 25-26.
Transportation-related strikes are common in Italy and can be highly disruptive. However, in accordance with Italian law, minimum service levels must be guaranteed during all strikes.
Travelers in Italy are advised to confirm their travel itineraries and to allow for extra time to reach their destinations for the duration of the strike.
