Tomorrow, Friday 3 December, a 4-hour transport strike is scheduled, from 8:30 to 12:30, called nationally by the Ugl union. In Rome and Lazio, all companies involved in local public transport, both public and private, will be involved. It will therefore be possible to stop for buses, trams, metro and the three regional railways managed by Atac, Rome-Lido, Termini-Centocelle and Rome-North. The strike also affects the connections that Atac has subcontracted, and Cotral.
Also possible inconveniences in the activities to the public of Rome Mobility Services, in particular the permit desk in Piazzale degli Archives, at the Eur, and the infomobility contact center 0657003. The protest of the UGL of 3 December will also affect Ferrovie dello Stato but with a different and longer timetable, from 9 to 17.
During the strike, the service of escalators, lifts and stair lifts will not be guaranteed in the stations of the Atac underground railway network that may remain open. Also during the protest, the service of the Atac ticket offices in some underground and railway stations will not be guaranteed; the interchange parking lots will remain open. The online ticketing service is always active.
The reasons for the strike of 3 December
The union organization Ugl protests for “the existing discrimination between workers in possession and not of green pass; for the intimidation and retaliation that are taking place given the decision-making autonomy left to companies to establish company procedures in the field of green application pass; for non-compliance with the protection of workers – even if the rules provide for limits to the disciplinary power of the employer, cases of serious violations are occurring; for the possibility that the tampons for green certification are given free to all workers interested in making companies comply with their obligation determined by law 81/08 of health surveillance and prevention for health and safety in the workplace; because the situation of local public transport that is expected is nothing short of surreal: ” compulsory nature of a green pass for those who drive the vehicle, but not for those who benefit from it; due to the lack of protection front line operators who are victims of post-covid effects; due to the non-application of Art. 1.2 point b second line of the annex to the Prime Ministerial Decree of 12-10-2021 in the Official Gazette no. 244 on 14.-10-21 an integral part of Legislative Decree 127 of 21-09-21 “.
