Italy -Transport strike against Jobs Act -May 15, 2015

Strike against the Jobs Act (labour reform), savage privatisations, continuous raising of the retirement age.

The national public transport strike called by the independent trade union USB has had a varied impact. In Milan the prefect issued an injunction to prevent the strike in light of the need for transport infrastructure to facilitate visitors in the city for Expo 2015. In Rome the strike took place as scheduled, affecting buses, underground and trams for 24 hours with the exception of guaranteed service during commute hours from start of service until 8:30 am and from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The USB called the strike against the Jobs Act (labour reform), savage privatisations, continuous raising of the retirement age, and severe penalties due to a national contract freeze going on eight years now.
