Govt moves to end Colosseum wildcat strikes

Rome, June 25 - The Italian government said Tuesday it had found the money to pay overtime owed to angry workers who staged two wildcat strikes last week the Colosseum in Rome. The ministry of culture said it will ''pay the outstanding arrears of wages to date from January''. Strikes by disgruntled workers from the FLP labor union closed the 2,000-year-old symbol of Rome last Thursday for four hours and again for a spell on Sunday. Businesses in the tourism sector had said they had suffered ''incalculable damage'' from the strikes at the Colosseum. ''In a country like Italy, tourism activities should be considered essential public services,'' Bernabo Bocca, head of the hoteliers' association Federalberghi, said Monday.
