Justice cancels layoffs and orders Renault to reinstate 747 workers –



São Paulo – On strike for 15 days, Renault workers in São José dos Pinhais, metropolitan region of Curitiba, will hold a new assembly on Thursday (6), starting at 2 pm, already with the news that a judicial decision has annulled the layoffs made by the company on July 21. Judge Sandra Mara de Oliveira Dias, of the 9th Region Regional Labor Court (TRT), declared the 747 dismissals null and void, determining immediate reinstatement. It is possible to appeal.

The magistrate also set a daily fine of R $ 100 thousand in case of non-compliance, up to the limit of R $ 1 million. The amount eventually paid must go to the association that maintains a children’s hospital in the region.

“Thus, there is that the collective dismissal without prior collective bargaining (effective and not merely formal) violates the Federal Constitution, especially the constitutional principles of union intervention in collective labor issues, social dialogue and the valorization of collective bargaining” , said the judge in her decision, citing Articles 8 and 114 of the Charter. She also cited conventions of the International Labor Organization that deal with layoffs and collective bargaining.

The judge of the Paraná TRT even disputes part of the labor “reform” of 2017. She argues that, “both from the constitutional and the international level”, there is a need for prior collective bargaining for collective dismissal.

Only negotiation solves Renault case

“This Wednesday’s court decision is a demonstration that we are right,” commented the president of the Metalworkers Union of Greater Curitiba, Sérgio Butka. “But we know that only dialogue can solve the problem. Throughout this time, the union was always willing and demanded common sense on the part of the company to agree to sit down to negotiate and find a reasonable solution for both workers and the company. ”

After metalworkers rejected a flexibilization proposal that included a voluntary layoff program, on July 21 the company laid off 747 of an approximate total of 7,300 employees. According to the union, a good part of them “with health problems like Covid-19, compulsory isolation and occupational and common diseases”.

The next day, workers went on strike. The union also claims that the company does not comply with state law (15,426, of 2007) that restricts layoffs in companies that receive tax benefits.

Union denounces the death of 20 teachers by covid-19 after back to school in SP




São Paulo – The Union of Teachers of Official Education of the State of São Paulo (Apeoesp) held a demonstration today (4) denouncing the death of at least 20 teachers by covid-19 since the beginning of the return to school in the state of São Paulo Paulo. The entity also accounts for 1,861 confirmed cases of covid-19 in 850 schools. The protest took place in front of the State Department of Education of the government of João Doria (PSDB), after a motorcade through the streets of the capital of São Paulo. In addition to honoring these teachers, the act also called for an immediate suspension of classes until the new coronavirus pandemic is controlled in the state.

The demonstration began in the Masp free space, on Avenida Paulista. From there, the teachers went to the State Department of Education, at Praça da República. “It is unacceptable what the Doria government has been doing with teachers. Without closing schools, keeping thousands of teachers and staff and millions of students circulating every day, many in public transport, Doria and her Education Secretary reveal themselves as they are: enemies of life ”, said the president of Apeoesp and state deputy, Professor Bebel.

The Doria government has not released records of confirmed and suspected covid-19 cases in schools for two weeks. Much less if there was a death by covid-19 of teachers, students or other education workers. In the only balance sheet released on February 16, there were 741 confirmed cases and 1,133 suspected cases.


Although it claims that back to school amid the covid-19 pandemic is safe, the Doria government has restricted access to the Education Information and Monitoring System for Covid-19. With that, the governor leaves the assessment of the resumption of activities without any transparency. Only one server from each school can be registered and access the system, both to notify suspected or confirmed cases of the disease at school, and to monitor the general situation of the pandemic in the public school system.

The Secretary of State for Health of São Paulo, Jean Gorinchteyn, defended, on Tuesday (2), the closure of schools across the state due to the worsening of the pandemic of covid-19. He admitted that the increase in the circulation of people promoted by the return to school has contributed to the worsening of the transmission of the new coronavirus in recent weeks, as teachers and health experts have always said it would happen. Today, São Paulo has 17,802, with 9,910 in the ward and 7,892 in the ICU, the largest number in the entire pandemic.

“If we understand that people are threatened
against the virus, against the collapse (of the health system), we have to reevaluate
situations that could be avoided. One of them is the situation of the school. THE
The problem is not the school, but the movement of people. Teachers, students, parents
who take and bring their children. Even in public transport, the exposure that the
we end up putting people. At this point, it is worth noting that this
question of not having classes, ”said Gorinchteyn, in an interview with CBN radio.


In addition to the case records and the denunciation of the death of these teachers by covid-19, Apeoesp also highlights data from the Hospital do Servidor Público Estadual (HSPE) that shows the exhaustion of intensive care units (ICU) after returning to school. According to the internal bulletin of the HSPE, on Monday (1), the ICU occupancy for patients with covid-19 in the hospital is 95%. In wards, the occupation is 73%.

Yesterday, Doria announced that the entire state will enter the red quarantine phase for two weeks, starting on Saturday (6), due to the worsening of the covid-19 pandemic in São Paulo. However, he decided to keep the schools open. “Despite the restriction measures, state schools will continue to open their doors at the worst moment of the pandemic”, criticized Bebel, who guaranteed the continuation of the teachers’ strike, which started on February 8.
