The Single Federation of Petroleum Workers (FUP) announced on Wednesday (28) that it would appeal the decision of the Minister of the Federal Supreme Court (STF), Alexandre de Moraes, who quashed the highest conviction for labor of Petrobras. The information was disclosed by Valor Econômico.

The minister annulled a 2018 decision of the Higher Labor Court (TST) which provided for the salary adjustment of 51,000 employees. According to FUP, the appeal will ask that the matter be analyzed by the plenary of the Court. The state-owned company predicts that at present values, the salary correction would cost R $ 46 billion.
