While trying to verify that, however, I did find information about proposed upcoming strikes for planes and trains in Italy:...More......
--22 June, Meridiana airlines (from midnight to midnight) and ENAV (the union for flight stewards and stewardesses, from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M.),
--5 July, Livingston (whatever THAT is, from 12 or 12:30 noonish to 4 or 4:30 P.M.) and both Meridiana (again) and AVIA (ground assistance...so that also might mean bags...for Linate and Malpensa, from midnight to midnight)
--12 July, trains from 9 P.M. on the 12th until 9 P.M. on the 13th
--20 July, Meridiana airlines (...), for 24 hours...probably from midnight to midnight.
To cheer you up, here's a snap in a train station in, I'm pretty sure, Chennai, India, that I snapped in the days right after Christmas, last year.
Want to check for yourself (in Italian)? Go to the strike page of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Transportation (Ministero delle Infrastrutture e dei Trasporti).
Enjoy the snap...endure the strikes, what else can be done?
