Italian Flight Attendants Strip Off To Protest Working Conditions

Aarja Mody, Staff Reporter, The Pawprint

Former Alitalia flight attendants protested against job losses and pay cuts this week in a uniquely Italian way: by stripping down. On the 22nd of October.

At the Campidoglio — the center power in Rome, about 50 former female flight attendants turned up in their Alitalia uniform and then stripped to their undergarments, chanting “We are Alitalia.”

It was a protest not only against the loss of their jobs but also against the contracts given to those who were kept by ITA Airways.

Threats of strike action have previously been described by ITA President Alfredo Altavilla as “a thing of national shame.”

He claims that airline employees agreed to the current working circumstances and that their concerns are similar to a driver gazing in the rearview mirror.
