Police workers are set for their first-ever nationwide strike in response to 'mudslinging' by authorities after officers in Rome called in sick on New Year's Eve.

Police workers are set for their first-ever nationwide strike in response to 'mudslinging' by authorities after officers in Rome called in sick on New Year's Eve. Members of police union Ospol-CSA - which represents nearly 60,000 officers in 8,000 Italian municipalities will walk out for 24 hours and stage a rally in Rome in solidarity with their colleagues on 12 February. The strike was called after politicians, including Rome's mayor and the prime minister, rebuked the force over a mass sickie pulled by 83.5% officers slated to be patrolling the streets on New Year's Eve. The absences followed a months-long rift between police and the government over changes to pay, working conditions and staffing levels.
