Italy News Alert

Mechanical engineers call strike and schedule protests in Rome and Naples on October 31, November 20; transportation disruptions expected

TIMEFRAME expected from 10/30/2019, 12:00 AM until 11/22/2019, 11:59 PM (Europe/Rome). COUNTRY/REGION Italy, Rome, Naples


Unions representing Italian mechanical engineers have called for strikes and protests on Thursday, October 31, and on Wednesday, November 20, to demand several sector reforms.

Though precise details on protests have not been immediately made available for October 31, the main protests are expected in Rome and Naples, though other smaller protests are likely to take place across the country.

Engineers will also protest on November 20, to coincide with a national assembly, where union members will voice their grievances and demand a shift in industrial policies that are affecting the amount of work and the restrictions being imposed on the sector. A large turnout is therefore expected in Rome for the event.

A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are to be expected in the vicinity of all protests.  


Individuals in Italy, notably in Rome and Naples, are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protests as a precaution, anticipate delays, plan additional travel time, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
