Federal officials will organize a national mobilization this Tuesday (18) for wage increases. The movement began after the government earmarked 1.7 billion reais in the budget for the benefit of police officers alone. The civil service elite, behind the movement, won the support of the other categories, with lower salaries. The demonstration is due to start at 10 a.m. in front of the headquarters of the Central Bank (BC), in Brasilia. Later, at 2 p.m., the meeting point will be at the Ministry of Economy.
Economy Minister Paulo Guedes opposes the granting of general readjustments. Raising police salaries was a promise made by President Jair Bolsonaro (PL). Although there is no stamp detailing the category in the budget coin, the value is said to have already been pledged to the police. Security forces have signaled that Bolsonaro’s withdrawal from the readjustment grant could be seen as treason.
In recent weeks, Federal Revenue, British Columbia and other agencies have handed over commissioned posts in protest and scaled back operations. If the government does not enter into negotiations, new mobilizations are planned for February 2.
The National Permanent Forum of Typical State Careers (Fonacate), which represents tax auditors of the tax administration, employees of the Central Bank, diplomats, among others, will be reinforced by the Forum of National Entities of Federal Civil Servants (Fonasefe), legislative and judiciary and university professors.
