Rome, March 22 - Nationwide transit-worker strikes
in Italy on Friday have frozen 75% of the country's public
transportation.
Limited services are still available during the 24-hour
suspension.
Spokespersons from the FILT-CGIL transport labor union said
that national adherence to the strike is "high", reaching 75%
for buses, while the majority of metros and city trains are
closed.
According to the FILT-CGIL 60% of buses in Rome are
stopped, 80% in the Piedmont city of Turin and 90% in the
southern city of Naples.
In Venice, where city buses are replaced by water
transport, 60% of transit has been halted.
In the Sicilian city of Palermo, 70% of public buses are
unavailable, while in the Puglia capital of Bari, 90% of the
city's buses are not running.
Some of Italian airline Alitalia's pilots are staging a
24-hour strike on Friday, as well.
The striking pilots belong to the Filt-Cgil, Fit-Cisl,
Uiltrasporti and Ugl unions.
The industrial action follows a four strike which took
place January 25.
