A nationwide strike breaks out in Italy and many ports face paralysis

Recently, Italy's two largest unions, UIL and CGIL, called on tens of thousands of workers in central regions to participate in nationwide strikes.

The nationwide strike in Italy has a very wide impact, including transportation, public administration, teaching and research, medical care, postal services and other industries.

According to reports from trade union organizations, the participation rate of strikers in many places in Italy reached more than 70%
Among them, the strike participation rate at ports in some areas reached 100%, the participation rate in the logistics industry was as high as 80%, and the participation rate in the public transportation and railway transportation industries was 70%.

The reason for the strike was that workers demanded an increase in workers' income levels and protection of basic rights and welfare.

It is understood that in order to continue to implement their plans and fight for workers' rights, labor unions will also organize multiple strikes in the next two weeks. If this wave of strikes continues to escalate in the next two weeks, it will have a certain impact on logistics, transportation, parcel delivery, etc.

The originally planned 24-hour strike protest was scaled back earlier after Italy's strike watchdog recommended postponing the protest and said it did not meet the requirements, saying the air transport sector would no longer participate.

What do you think of the frequent strikes? How much impact will it have on logistics and transportation? Will you accept logistics delays caused by strikes?
