Italy -All out Genoa bus strike ends with deal -November 23, 2013

After a five day all out strike of Genoa bus services, crippling public transport in the city, trade unions and the municipality reached an agreement. The strike started when the municipal council was set to discuss a bill to fix the bus services that are operating at a loss, requiring at least an 8 million euro investment. Fearing privatisation, its 2,400 employees initiated a wild strike that lasted five days and made national coverage as a ‘Greek-style strike’. Following intensive talks, trade unions and the municipality reached an agreement that guarantees there will be no pay cuts and that foresees European funding to square the budget.
