Several unions representing Alitalia ground staff have confirmed that the scheduled strike for Wednesday, October 9, will go ahead as planned. The 24-hour strike, between 00:01 and 23:59, comes amid negotiations to rescue the airline. Staff aim to express concerns on the status of said ongoing negotiations. Flight disruptions, including delays, modified timetables, and last-minute cancellations, are possible during the strike period.
Flight disruptions, including delays, modified timetables, and last-minute cancellations, are possible if the work stoppage does take place.
Transportation-related strikes are frequent in Italy and can be highly disruptive. However, in accordance with Italian law, minimum levels of services must be guaranteed during all industrial and social actions.
Individuals flying via airports in Italy are advised to keep abreast of the situation, confirm the status of their flights prior to departure for the airport, and anticipate flight and airport service disruptions during any work stoppage.
