Network campaign questions layoffs at Itaú during pandemic

Published

on

São Paulo – To report a wave of layoffs at Itaú bank, Internet users made a “tweet” on the morning of this Wednesday (23). At least 130 workers were laid off, even after a commitment signed in March with workers that there would be no cuts during the pandemic.

With the hashtag # ItaúNoDemitaMeusPais, anticipating Children’s Day, they questioned the institution’s stance, highlighting the billionaire gains obtained by the institution in the last period.

In 2019, Itaú recorded a record profit of R $ 28 billion. In addition, in the first half of this year, even with the country’s economy falling, the profit recorded by the bank was R $ 8 billion.

However, at the beginning of the pandemic, after charging the National Bank Command and the Bank Workers Union of São Paulo, Osasco and the Region, Itaú had announced that, during this period, it would only resign for just cause or for ethical deviation.

But this month, 130 vehicle workers have been laid off. Itaú’s Employee Organization Commission (COE) states that there were also layoffs of workers at branches. The cuts affected, for example, bank workers on sick leave and others who had received awards for good performance.

Under pressure from the COE, Itaú stated that it relocated 70% of employees in the vehicle area who were initially going to be fired. But the unions want to reinstate the zero layoff agreement during the pandemic.

On the other hand, the bank also assumed deviations in the termination process, and undertook to reassess the cases of bank workers dismissed in health care. As a result, workers are also pressing for homologations to be made again in the unions of the category. The change came after the approval of the labor “reform” by the Temer government, which came into force in November 2017.

Contradictions

For Itaú’s COE coordinator, Jair Alves, the cuts during the pandemic contrast with the supposedly “humanized” stance that the bank tries to sell in its advertising campaigns. “We cannot accept such an inconsistency. This is the time for the bank to show its responsibility to the country. ”

São Paulo – Former Bolivian President Evo Morales commented, this Wednesday (21st), the importance of youth in the electoral process that led Luis Arce, from the Movement to Socialism (MAS), to victory in the presidential election of October 18 . “Young people saw what it is like to live under the right and the dictatorship. And they reflected on how we were with our revolution and how we were under the coup, ”he said. Evo was overthrown by a coup in November 2019 that brought lawyer and TV presenter Jeanine Áñez to the presidency. With 90% of the official count completed. at 3:40 pm on this Wednesday (21st), Luis Arce approaches 55% of the valid votes. “What was at stake on October 18 was to go back to the past with the privatists or continue to the future with the nationalists,” said Evo Morales in an interview with Breno Altman (watch below).

Asked how the country will recover from the economic crisis aggravated by the coronavirus pandemic, he replied that it will be with the presence of the state. The Bolivian guaranteed that Bolivia will normalize relations with China, Cuba, “some European countries” and Russia. “Those who once asked for market, market, market, now say State, State State, in the face of the pandemic.”

Vaccine against covid-19

“We are going to face the pandemic. When we have the vaccine, we will distribute it to all 11 million Bolivians for free. ” According to him, tackling the pandemic and the crisis will be done through joint work between the federal government, governors and mayors.

In Brazil, President Jair Bolsonaro not only boycotts health policies, but goes further. On Wednesday, he forbade the country to buy the Chinese vaccine CoronaVac, which would have 46 million doses through negotiations with the state of São Paulo announced the day before by the Minister of Health, Eduardo Pazuello. “I don’t give up my authority”, justified the Brazilian’s head of state.

South America

About neighbors in South America, Evo Morales highlighted the “profound ideological and programmatic difference” between MAS and the president of Chile, Sebastián Piñera, from Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro, and the former Argentine president Mauricio Macri. But it was diplomatic. “Whether it is left or right, we must work together respecting our differences. South Americans cannot be isolated, ”he said.

Morales acknowledged that he may have been mistaken as president. “I was wrong, but I am a human being,” he said. “Now we have experience in public management, and we are going to take Bolivia forward, united, organized.” He affirmed that the new government will make “a pact of union between the parties of the right, businessmen and workers, a great national agreement, to raise the economy”, adding: “The moment is to consolidate our process of change, democracy does not end on election day ”.

Evo has been in Argentina since December 2019, where he went into exile after the coup in the country. He said that the return to his country still has no forecast. In an interview with BBC Brazil, the president-elect was not positive about the possible participation of the ex-president in the new government. “If Evo Morales wants to help us, he will be very welcome. But that does not mean that Morales will be in the government. It will be my government, ”he said.
