Metal workers are planning to strike and hold simultaneous rallies in the cities of Milan, Florence, and Naples on Friday, June 14. Union leaders announced that the strikes will last for eight hours and begin at 09:00 (local time). The workers are calling for the renewal of the national contract that is expiring at the end of 2019, as well as increased investments into the industry and greater job security. A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are anticipated around all protest sites.
Individuals in the abovementioned cities are advised to keep abreast of the situation and avoid all demonstrations as a precaution.
