Italy: Three unions stand together to push back against cuts in rest time for drivers

This action week is exactly the kind of coordinated response we need to ensure workers’ voices are heard at EU level.

In Rome the three ETF affiliated unions Fit Cisl, CGIL and Uil Trasporti protested at bus terminals and handed out information leaflets.
