The Or.SA Ferrovie rail workers union is planning to hold a strike across Italy on Friday, February 8, into the early hours (local time) of Saturday, February 9. The work stoppage is expected from 03:00 on Friday until 02:00 on Saturday. A related strike organized by rail mechanics is also scheduled on Friday from 09:00 to 17:00. Transportation disruptions, including crowded conditions on available trains, delays, and limited services, are expected on Friday with possible residual disruptions on Saturday.
Transportation-related strikes are common in Italy and can be highly disruptive. However, in accordance with Italian law, minimum levels of services must be guaranteed during all strikes.
Travelers in Italy are advised to confirm their travel itineraries, adhere to instructions issued by relevant authorities, anticipate transportation delays and crowded conditions, and allow for extra time to reach their destinations.
