Florence, 6 November 2021 – Flash mob of the Cobas of Autolinee Toscane, ex Ataf, protesting for the closing of the driver’s lounge in via Alamanni. “Once again – explains Alessandro Nannini, of the Cobas, who spoke to the flash mob in front of the closed driver’s room – workers and users see themselves treated as real invisible. The change in management of the company has brought to light existing problems, but also new ones “.
The “clearest” example, Nannini points out, is precisely the closure of the driver’s room via Alamanni, until recently used for the psycho-physical recovery of drivers during the stop, “strategic position due to the presence of the ‘reserves’, that is the personnel ready to enter service in the event of an emergency or criticality on the lines, and essential in representing the common thread with the radio room and the operations center, which are also placed in serious difficulty by both the outgoing Ataf and the successor Autolinee Toscane “.
The premises of the ticket office in via Alamanni, where users could receive information on the service and travel tickets. “We feel cheated. In the’absurd conflict between the old and new management of local Florentine public transport, workers and users lose out. We are no longer willing to be invisible”, Concludes Nannini.
