Train strike and Covid infections, black Saturday 8 January between canceled and reduced rides

Rome, 7 January 2022 – It risks being a Saturday difficult for those who will have to travel by trainJanuary 8 because of the strike proclaimed by the trade unions Orsa and Ugl. Trenitalia employees will cross their arms from 9 to 17 and this could lead to a reduction of convoys throughout the national territory with the exception of Intercity and regional transport of Liguria.

During the strike, some will still be provided national races listed in the appropriate station tables and on the trenitalia.com website. In regional transport, since the strike takes place outside the hours of greater mobility (6-9; 18-21), there are no minimum services to be ensured and the programming of all services will take place in operational management, based on the availability of the personal.

The possible reductions in travel due to the strike overlap with cancellations already planned, both in regional and national transport, due to the particular pandemic situation which is causing a growing number of Covid infections even among employees.

National trains guaranteed in case of strike

Covid: Italo cuts races

A problem, the latter, which also involves the ‘competitor’ Italo. The company Ntv has in fact communicated the reduction of daily services following the trend of infections, the measures taken by the Government to stem the pandemic situation and the consequent sharp contraction in demand. The first cancellations will start from today and will concern six races, from 14 January they will become 27 (of which 21 canceled every day and a further 6 on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays).
