This poster is announcing rallys during a general strike day scheduled for this Friday. What will that mean for me? It depends on which unions decide to participate in the strike.

If the busses go on strike that would mean no bus service form 8:30 am to 4:30 pm. I usually take the bus to school before that time. So getting to work for me will be fine.

If the teacher's unions go on strike the public school across from our school will be empty. (Well, almost empty. The nursery division will still be open.)

If the trains go on strike it will affect people from our church going to Orvieto for a retreat weekend. Most trains will not operate from noon to 6:00 pm. But, maybe the Orvieto trains will still be running. One never knows. (We are driving in the car, so we will not be affected.)

Or the whole thing could be canceled or just not happen!!! One of the fun things about living here.
