Roma TPL, a consortium of transport companies, is to dismiss 143 workers in Rome. The company has been in charge of operating public transport service in the periphery of Rome since 2010, managing about 20% of the bus service in the capital. Roma TPL explained that the job cuts are due to the discontinuation of the night service, recently insourced by ATAC, the local public company operating most of the transport lines. Dismissals should affect mainly administrative officers, but also ticket inspectors and traffic wardens.

Unions are calling for the involvement of the local administration in the negotiations in order to find alternatives to the job cuts. The climate is already quite tense as the risk of dismissals arose already twice this year; workers are issuing strikes due to wage cuts and delays in the payment of wages.
