Travel Alert: Strike in Italy on September 8, 2023!

0 210

Italy's airport workers, who are represented by the unions CUB, UGL, FLAI, FIT, CISL and USB, plan to strike nationwide for 24 hours on September 8. Unions are demanding an increase in wages in line with inflation. Further industrial action by airport staff is announced for September 16 and 29. Inevitably, the strike will lead to flight delays and cancellations. Even after the strike ends, the situation will not immediately return to normal, as it will take several hours, perhaps even days, for air traffic to return to normal.
