On Thursday (1st), the federal government published in the Official Gazette of the Union the update of the national teaching floor. Now, the base salary of public educators across the country is R$4,580.57. Before, it was R$4,420.55. However, the National Confederation of Municipalities (CNM) argues that defining the floor through ordinances is illegal. The CNM highlights that the legal criterion has lost its effectiveness due to changes in the legislation of the Fund for the Maintenance and Development of Basic Education and the Valorization of Education Professionals (Fundeb).

Despite the lower adjustment in 2024, the CNM states that the government continues “committing illegalities, maintaining that the adjustment of the floor in the last three years occurred without legal certainty”.

The entity highlights that the adjustment of 58.71% between 2022 and 2024 represents a significant impact of approximately R$61 billion on municipal coffers. The entity argues that Fundeb’s revenue increased by 255.9% between 2009 and 2023, while the increase in the teaching floor was 365.3%.

The Federal Attorney General’s Office has already issued an opinion in agreement with the confederation’s position, highlighting the illegality of the ordinances since 2022.

How is the adjustment calculated?

The change is based on the National Professional Salary Floor Adjustment Index (PSPN) for public basic education teaching, known as Value Student Year of Urban Elementary Education (VAAF). With a VAAF of 3.62%, the new minimum value for teachers had an adjustment of the same proportion.

The ordinance that made the increase official, published at the turn of the year, establishes the values, but also indicates the proportionality of the floor in relation to the workload.

For a 40-hour work week, the minimum wage is R$4,580.57. In cases of 30 hours, the minimum value is R$3,381.42, and for 25 hours, R$2,817.85. This segmentation seeks to provide transparency regarding the minimum salary values, considering different working hours.
