Justice decides for reinstatement of bank workers laid off in pandemic



São Paulo – Labor Courts have granted injunctions favorable to the reinstatement of bank workers dismissed during the pandemic. One of the main arguments recognized by judges in the lawsuits is the fact that the country’s three largest private banks have made a public commitment not to fire during the pandemic period.

Adriana Aguiar report in the newspaper Value takes stock of the situation of labor lawsuits that have been motivated by layoffs in the pandemic. According to the report, 11,087 labor cases were distributed this year with the terms pandemic and reintegration in the initial pieces. The numbers are from the jurimetry platform Data Lawyer Insights. Of the total, 417 were against Santander, 283 against Bradesco and 177 against Itaú Unibanco.

The National Confederation of Financial Workers (Contraf-CUT) carried out a survey that shows that Santander has laid off 1,100 workers since June. “The numbers may be higher because not all of them are approved by unions, since the labor reform came into force,” says the entity’s president, Juvandia Moreira. Itaú Unibanco has laid off 130 employees since September and Bradesco promoted 566 dismissals this month, the confederation informs.

Bank reinstatement requests

The newspaper Value also heard the lawyer Cristina Stamato, from Stamato, from Saboya & Rocha Advogados Associados about the reintegration of bank employees. Cristina works for the Union of Employees in Banking Establishments in Nova Friburgo and in Niterói e Região. She claims to have filed 32 requests for reinstatement. Of these, he says he obtained favorable injunctions in six cases and negative in seven, which he will appeal.

Cristina explains that the processes have
as the main foundation the commitment of the three largest private banks, in
meeting with the National Federation of Banks (Fenaban) that there would be no
layoffs. “Despite not being in a collective agreement, it was assumed not only
means of communication, as in the information to shareholders, which generates a
obligation to employees ”. Another argument presented is that, even in the
crisis, banks still made a profit.

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.
