Day of ‘mourning and struggle’ on Friday: centrals will light candles, put crosses and charge the government

Published

São Paulo – The act of the centrals next Friday (7), a date set a few days ago, will be of “mourning and struggle”, say the entities. In addition to protests and stoppages across the country, union leaders will light candles and fix crosses in public places. To denounce the government’s neglect of the pandemic, demand maintenance of emergency aid.

Thus, in some workplaces, the idea is to stop for 100 minutes, in honor of the victims. The death toll from the covid-19 is already approaching 100,000.

“There is also a campaign encouraging Brazilians to put white cloth on the windows as a way to remember the situation we are going through”, the centrals also affirmed, in a note. “It is worth mentioning that, in addition to having contributed to the loss of thousands of lives, the neglect and lack of control with which the government treated the pandemic launched Brazil in one of the greatest economic and social crises in its entire history, with the extinction in mass of jobs and companies. ”

SUS assistance and defense

In addition, the objective is to charge the government to maintain, at least until December, the emergency aid of R $ 600. “We need to say loud and clear that we will not get out of this crisis with Bolsonaro in power. It is essential to denounce the 100 thousand deaths and, above all, to ask for measures against this government that deepens the crisis due to irresponsibility, for not having taken adequate sanitary and economic measures to face the pandemic ”, says the CUT general secretary, Carmen Foro.

The agenda also includes strengthening of the Unified Health System (SUS), expansion of the unemployment insurance installments, more individual and collective protection equipment for essential categories and more credits for micro and small companies.

FGTS

Força Sindical released a note to protest the government’s intention to reduce the monthly discount of the Guarantee Fund, from 8% to 6%. For the central, the proposal of Minister Paulo Guedes (Economy) “deprives workers of fundamental assistance at the time of dismissal without cause”.

The tax debate is of a different nature, the entity maintains, adding that the tax system is one of the main factors responsible for social inequality. In order to correct this historical injustice, we advocate simplified taxation, to combat inefficiency, tax evasion and the costs of companies, and, above all, progressive taxation, which is based on the proportional participation of companies and citizens. Pay more who wins more ”, he adds.

Centrals promote act for emergency aid of R $ 600 in São Paulo

São Paulo – Union centrals will return to the streets next Tuesday (3), for an act in São Paulo, in front of the headquarters of the Central Bank, on Avenida Paulista. On the centrals’ agenda is the maintenance of emergency aid in the amount of R $ 600 and the exemption from payroll so that companies can react to the effects of the pandemic and keep jobs. The demonstration is scheduled for 11am.

The issue of R $ 600 emergency aid has been the subject of a campaign by the exchanges since September, when the government issued Provisional Measure (MP) 1,000. The benefit was extended until December, but the Planalto cut the amount in half, to R $ 300. The opposition in the Chamber and the centrals want the MP to enter the agenda, which has been obstructed for a month. This week, the President of the House, Rodrigo Maia (DEM-RJ), said he could include the topic on the agenda.

The maintenance of tax relief for 17 sectors of the economy was vetoed by Jair Bolsonaro. At first, it ends in December. But Congress is mobilizing to overturn the veto. The president of the Senate and Congress, Davi Alcolumbre (DEM-AP), scheduled for next Wednesday (4) a joint session to analyze presidential vetoes and bills.

Positive for covid

The president of Força Sindical, Miguel Torres, tested positive for covid-19. On video, he said he had no serious symptoms and was breathing normally. Already medicated, he will be quarantined at home. With the confirmation, the manager’s family is conducting tests.
