The 4-hour national strike called by Filt Cgil, Fit Cisl, Uiltrasporti, Faisa Cisal and Ugl. Black Friday of public transport. Bus, tram and metr Atm in Milan: risk of stop between 8.45 and 12.45. Lombard railways, agitation between 9 and 13: lines involved and replacement vehicles
At the last strike, on December 16, 2021, 21% of the workers had joined. One in five employees. Yet, in the evening, the ATM had been forced to stop the red line of the metro and part of the green line. What will happen on January 14th? another black Friday of public transport is coming. At different times, metr, buses, trams and regional trains are involved. The trade union acronyms Filt Cgil, Fit Cisl, Uiltrasporti, Faisa Cisal and Ugl have called a 4-hour national strike in support of the negotiation for the collective agreement: We claim the right to renew and improve working conditions, both regulatory and salary, of a category that has always responsibly, in any condition, performed an essential public service , guaranteeing citizens’ right to mobility. The agitation will impact both the Milan ATM network and the regional railway lines. Here is the passenger guide.
The Atm network
The strike will affect the bus, tram and metr Atm lines between 8.45 and 12.45. The blockade threat comes at a critical time for the company, already struggling with outbreaks and quarantines: 650 employees are absent for Covid, the level of service is guaranteed without cuts – at the moment – only thanks to a real-time reorganization of shifts and staff flexibility (which covers the gaps in the tables). The races on the lines 201, 220, 222, 230, 328, 423, 431 and 433 of Agi and the smart buses departing between 18 and 22 (guaranteed departures from the terminus from the beginning of the service at 18). For information: Atm.it, here instead the report of the adhesions to the strikes.
The regional railways
The strike also involves the staff of Ferrovienord, the regional company that manages the infrastructure (Trenord deals with the service): the agitation could slow down or stop the circulation of regional and suburban trains from 9.01 to 13.00. Potential inconveniences, with delays and variations, are expected on the Milan Cadorna – Canzo / Asso, Como Lago / Novara Nord / Laveno / Varese – Milan Cadorna, Brescia / Iseo – Edolo lines. Also involved in the strike were the airport connections between Milan and Malpensa (replaced by buses from Cadorna). Possible repercussions on the service also in the sections under mixed management on the lines S1 Saronno – Milano Passante – Lodi, S4 Camnago – Milano Cadorna, S9 Saronno – Seregno – Milano – Albairate, S13 Milano Bovisa – Pavia. Trains, on the other hand, are already suffering the repercussions of Covid, with reduced convoys and cut night runs. For information: Ferrovienord and Trenord.
