ABC metalworkers approve agreement with Toyota, which will change administrative area



São Paulo – Assembly held on Monday (28) approved an agreement negotiated between the ABC Metalworkers Union (SMABC) and Toyota, which will transfer the administrative sector from São Bernardo do Campo to Sorocaba, in the interior of São Paulo. With approximately 1,400 employees, the ABC plant is the automaker’s first outside Japan. It was opened in 1962.

The union president, Wagner Santana, Wagnão, said he received the news of the change with “perplexity”. But he noted that, in the agreement, Toyota is committed to the continuity of the São Bernardo plant. A negotiation table will be formed to discuss and enable new products. “Based on this understanding and the closing of this agreement, we are now focused on seeking conditions to expand the plant’s production capacity,” he said.

The company will open a voluntary dismissal program (POS) for the administrative area, with 12 additional salaries and maintenance of the health plan for one year. “The program is open even to those who will be transferred from the plant and also to retirees who work in the production”, also inform the metalworkers.

No industrial policy

For those who will be transferred from São Bernardo to Sorocaba – whose factory is in 2012 – the agreement also provides for additional salaries. Those who prefer not to change their address will have chartered transportation for two years. In addition, there will be stability of one year for all who go to the interior unit.

“The company intended to transfer 600 workers and we managed to reduce it to 490. Of the 300 that the factory intended to remove, we negotiated so that the target is 120”, recalled Wagnão. “Unlike what we experienced in 2015, for example, when Inovar Auto investments made it possible to expand the Toyota plant and build the development center, today there is no action by governments in defense of industry and jobs. They kept the transfer decision, but we got a good agreement for those who will be transferred, with stability, and a POS at a good level, so that the departures happen voluntarily. ”

Private school owners drop out of process back to school




São Paulo – Sieeesp, a union that represents private schools in the state of São Paulo, withdrew from a lawsuit filed against the capital’s city hall. In action, he asked for back to school for all stages of basic education – infant and fundamental. In a demonstration on the last day (1), the eve of the Black Consciousness holiday, Judge Renata Barros Souto Maior Baiao acknowledged the withdrawal of the process by Sieeesp. And he officiated the Public Ministry. In an order of November 12, prosecutor João Paulo Faustinoni e Silva, from the Special Education Action Group of the São Paulo Public Prosecutor’s Office, spoke out against the granting of an injunction and recommended that the process be forwarded to the City Hall.

The private teachers ‘union (Sinpro-SP) also contested Sieeesp’s action, calling for the dismissal of school owners’ action to return to face-to-face classes. The day after the MP’s demonstration, Sieeesp decided to abandon the action.

Municipal decree 59,860, signed on October 23 by the city of São Paulo, even allowed the resumption of classroom activities in high school. But it did not include permission for activities in early childhood education (up to 5 years old) or in elementary school (6 to 14 years old). Sieeesp argued, in its action, that the decision “would not have scientific support and would violate the principle of isonomy”.

Rushed back to school

Fepesp – the state federation of teachers of private schools – even condemned the decision of Mayor Bruno Covas’ management to release back to school in high school. And also the action of Sieeesp. “We consider the return to face-to-face activities to be hasty, as it exposes teachers, employees and everyone involved in the school ecosystem to the risk of contagion due to the agglomeration caused in classrooms or on public transport”, says Fepesp, in a note.

“The risk is still present and it was for no other reason that we insisted – and won in court – on special protection not only for education professionals in groups at risk. But also to all teachers who live with elderly people, with comorbidities, who are recovering from childbirth. And, thus, included in risk groups. ”
