The ATM itself explains the reasons for the protest on its official website. The strike was called “against the liberalisation, privatization and tenders for the services currently managed by the Atm group and for the re-internalisation of contracted and subcontracted LPT services, against the Milano Next project”, in favor of the “transformation of Atm in a special company of the municipality of Milan and the consequent direct in-house assignment of services, as well as for their gratuitousness”, in favor of the “reactivation of the distance between drivers and users with inhibition of the front door for passengers to get on and off; for cleaning, sanitizing and sanitizing of cars and environments”.
And again, employees can: “For the protection of the safety of workers most exposed to aggressive acts, also with passive protection systems, for the use of holidays for traveling staff, company plans for hiring and transformation of part-time contracts , for the €150 net increase for all workers, to recover the insufficient increases in national contracts; for further company-related issues relating, among other things, to holiday pay, special shifts and clothing”.
“The agitation of the traveling and operating personnel of the surface and underground lines – reads a public note on the company’s official website – will be possible from 8.45 to 15.00 and from 18.00 at the end of the service” . In Milan, therefore, the undergrounds, buses and trams will be guaranteed from the start of service at 8.45 and from 15 to 18. For the rest of the day, however, there is the risk that the vehicles will stop..
