After ABC, metallurgists at Volks in Taubaté approve agreement



São Paulo – After São Bernardo do Campo, yesterday, it was the turn of workers at the Volks de Taubaté, in the Paraíba Valley, in the interior of São Paulo, to approve an agreement with the automaker. The assembly was held on the afternoon of Thursday (16). The proposal includes a voluntary dismissal program (PDV) and flexibility measures, with two items highlighted by the Metalworkers’ Union of Taubaté and Region: job stability for five years and “thawing” of investments for the factory.

The agreement involves 15,000 workers at the four Vokswagen units in Brazil. Metalworkers in São José dos Pinhais (PR) are conducting virtual voting. And those from São Carlos (SP) will hold an assembly next Monday (21).

“Each plant has its own peculiarities, but this did not prevent unity of union representatives in the negotiation of specific items. This union was extremely important for us to reach the agreement, which is already a reference in the country ”, assessed the president of the Taubaté union, Cláudio Batista, Claudião, when evaluating the circumstance of the agreement with Volks. “We live in a scenario of uncertainty and with many companies firing. Thus, to be able to build an agreement that gives job stability for five years, in addition to investments, is to give peace of mind to workers ”, he added. According to him, this should also be reflected in the entire automobile production chain.

In August, the company approached the unions saying it wanted to reduce the workforce by approximately 35%, due to the pandemic. With 3,100 employees, the Taubaté plant interrupted activities for three months, until June.

The agreement has rules for salary adjustments and payment of profit sharing (PLR). It also provides for the possibility of adopting lay-off for up to 10 months. The production of a Polo model should be shared with the São Bernardo plant. Already the track alignment (New Polo) will be made only at the Taubaté unit.

Banda Novo Planeta brings maturity and vibrant message in debut single




São Paulo – The São Paulo band Novo Planeta debuted, this Friday (30th), on all digital platforms, with their first single Message from Jah, one of the five tracks of the project The Bonanza, which has no release date yet. In this first work, the four members of the group show maturity through a vibrant message.

The union came about after sharing the same passion for Brazilian popular music and also for poetry. Another common denominator, which resulted in the group’s sound aesthetics, is that everyone was inspired, since much younger, in groups that made history in Brazil, such as O Rappa, Charlie Brown Jr and Natiruts.

The group promises to bring songs filled with inspiration in its main references. In a constant process of transformation, the band brings songs that can be a breath in times of a Brazil marked by adversity.

Before the emergence of the current name, Novo Planeta, the quartet had already met and presented themselves as Made In THC, which later became New Planet. In 2018, they played at Matilha Cultural, an important and historic space in downtown São Paulo, responsible for being the gateway for many independent artists on the circuit.

In the band Novo Planeta, Dimas Santos, Mano Bob, is responsible for the voice and guitar. Gabriel Ramalho, known as Ramall, works on percussion and second voice. Meanwhile, Henrique Naske plays the drums and Rafael Almeida, the guitar.
