Local transport strikes 5 March

Wednesday 5 March will see Milan hit by another local transport strike.
Workers of the Orsa union will be protesting against the renewal of their contract, for which they say they have been waiting 6 years.  They will down tools from 08.45 to 15.00 and from 18.00 until the normal night shut-down time; in other words, there will be normal service early in the morning and for a 3-hour window in the afternoon, as required by law.
Since only one small union will be striking, the city will not come to a total halt, but if the striking workers shut the gates to the metro stations, then the discomfort may increase.
City hall advises that the limited traffic zone “Area C” will be suspended for the whole day.
