Train strike: regional governments hit. In Calabria there is still an emergency. Protests also occurred on December 1st

2 min read


Disasters also in Abruzzo. Some trains have been cancelled, including regional trains departing from Pescara for Teramo, Ancona, Avezzano and the Frecciarossa to Venice Santa Lucia. Cancellations also for trains arriving at Pescara station.

Difficulty in Molise. Around fifty commuters who left from Isernia, Bojano and Campobasso with the Ferrovie dello Stato replacement bus set up within the guarantee period remained stuck for a long time at the Venafro station, in the province of Isernia. Once they arrived at the Venafro station they were unable to get on the train to Rome because the train conductor was missing.

The reasons for the protest

The unions write in a note: «We intend to report, waiting for the judiciary to shed full light on what happened (in Calabria, ed) the fragility of an infrastructure system that has once again proven inadequate for users and workers. For years we have been denouncing the danger of level crossings at all levels, asking for their total suppression. Yet, despite the National Agency for Railway Safety having highlighted the number of accidents and victims caused by accidents similar to today’s, there are still thousands of level crossings in Italy.”

Joining the strike for safety

«A very high membership with tips up to 100% of railway workers employed by all Italian railway companies, confirms that the category is no longer willing to risk their lives for the failure to adapt and modernize railway and road infrastructures”. Thus Filt Cgil, Fit Cisl, Uiltrasporti, Ugl Ferrovieri, Orsa Trasporti and Fast Confsal, after surveying the percentage of members of the 8-hour strike.

December 1st is also at risk

But it doesn’t end here. Friday 1 December 2023 could also be a day of passion for those who have to travel by train. The acronyms CAT, Cub Trasporti, SGB and USB Lavoro Privato have proclaimed a national strike by the staff of the FS Italiane Group from 9pm on 30 November to 9pm on 1 December 2023.
Possible repercussions on Frecce, Intercity and regional. The effects on traffic, in terms of cancellations, limitations and delays, may occur even before and last beyond the end time of the strike.
