The servers of the Central Bank approved this Wednesday (16), during the Assembly of the National Union of Central Bank Employees (Sinal), the daily cessation of activities as a protest for the wage readjustments of the category and career restructuring. The work stoppage will take place from this Thursday (17), every day, between 2:00 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.
“There are 17 days left, according to the electoral law, for a readjustment of federal officials to be made possible. Therefore, the increased pressure in the second half of March will be decisive for the success of our claim for compensation,” reads a note published on the entity’s website.
The servers have also decided to seek collective exemption from all commissioned functions within the Central Bank. The union is also demanding a meeting until next Tuesday with Chief Minister of the Civil House, Ciro Nogueira, and demands that Central Bank President Roberto Campos Neto cover the federal government for a position on readjustments. If both demands are not met, the category indicates that it will discuss an indefinite strike proposal.
