Eight-hour national strike. On Friday 16 September, from 8.30 to 16.30, the workers of Atac, Roma Mobility Services, Cotral and Roma Tpl, join the workers of most Tpl companies in Lazio, crossing their arms.
In Rome and Lazio, from 8.30 to 16.30, Roma Mobility Services explains that the protest will affect Atac, Roma Tpl, Cotral and Roma Servizi per la Mobilità.

Stops are therefore possible on buses, trolleybuses, trams, subways and Rome-Lido, Rome-North and Termini-Centocell trains from 8.30 to 16.30.
