Italy strikes this weekend

Alitalia and Italy ATC employees to walk out
Air traffic controllers and some Alitalia employees are likely to strike this Sunday, May 28, which is expected to cause delays and cancellations.
The ATC staff will walk out at 13:00 until 17:00 local time, while the Alitalia unions CUB Trasporti, USB, Confael and Assovolo will be away from work between 10:00 and 18:00.
Alitalia says additional ground staff will be placed at Rome Fiumicino and Milan Linate airports.
The troubled airline, which applied for special administration earlier this month, has already cancelled some international and domestic flights during the day and is rebooking passengers on other flights. Among other carriers, easyJet says it also expects an impact to its operations.
