São Paulo – One day before the base date, which is just today, bank workers ended their salary campaign after voting by 89 affiliated unions across the country. According to the National Confederation of Financial Branch Workers (Contraf-CUT), 93% of the votes in the private sector were in favor of the proposal negotiated with the National Federation of Banks (Fenaban). The percentages were slightly lower in the case of Caixa and Banco do Brasil, but still significant: 70.82% and 83.68%, respectively.

With a two-year duration, the collective agreement now provides for 1.5% of salary readjustments and an allowance of R $ 2 thousand. Benefits such as food and meal vouchers will be corrected by the INPC-IBGE, estimated at 2.74%, in addition to the fixed values ​​of profit sharing or profit sharing (PLR). For 2021, there will be an adjustment for inflation and a real increase of 0.5%, including other funds. The social clauses were maintained.

Adverse scenario

On the basis of the union of São Paulo, Osasco and Region, for example, the proposal was approved with 93.38% of the votes. In Rio de Janeiro, private bank employees accepted a similar percentage, 93.89%, reaching 72.36% at Caixa and 77.44% at BB.

“Even in an adverse scenario, with a government allied with bankers and against workers, in a pandemic that aggravated the economic crisis and with half the category in home office ”, said the president of the São Paulo union, Ivone Silva. She recalled that, during the campaign, which required 14 rounds of negotiations, including last weekend, Fenaban insisted on zero readjustments and changes for the worse in the PLR ​​rules, in addition to the withdrawal of rights.

Ghost

For CUT metallurgists in the state of São Paulo, the challenge is to guarantee a clause that provides job stability, especially in this pandemic period. According to the president of FEM-CUT, the state’s federation in the category, which also has a base date of September 1, the negotiation with the various employers’ sectors remains “stuck” due, basically, to the demand for stability.

“For us, it does not make sense to close a base date without predicting that workers will have some peace of mind. And the São Paulo business community is not sensitive to this theme ”, says Luizão. According to him, companies have shown ill will and “throw everything into the account of the pandemic”.

Thus, the issue of employment is “central” in this year’s campaign. “The idea is that we take the ghost of unemployment out of the worker’s mind for a few months,” says the president of FEM-CUT. The sector had very bad months, such as June, when 8 thousand vacancies were closed. In July, 500 jobs were opened. “Recovery is expected to be quite slow.” The negotiation involves 187 thousand metalworkers.

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.
