A strike by teachers and employees is expected to paralyze the activities of around 230 institutions in the federal education network from Wednesday (3). The strike was defined in a full assembly of the National Union of Basic, Professional and Technological Education Servers (Sinasefe) a week ago and tends to affect the functioning of federal schools and institutes in 18 states.

The servers are mobilized for, basically, four agendas: replacement of salary losses accumulated during the governments of presidents Michel Temer (MDB) and Jair Bolsonaro (PL), restructuring of career plans, more investments in institutions and holding a hiring competition of more workers.

These demands, in fact, are common from other groups of employees who work in the federal education network. Along with technicians and professors from federal universities, professors and technicians from federal colleges and institutes promise to carry out a general strike from the 15th.

Technical administrative employees (TAEs) at universities have been on strike since the 11th. The mobilization is organized by the Federation of Unions of Technical-Administrative Workers in Education at Public Higher Education Institutions in Brazil (Fasubra) and affects at least 30 universities.

Teachers at federal universities, represented by the National Union of Teachers of Higher Education Institutions (Andes-SN), are preparing a strike from the 15th. If this strike is confirmed, activities throughout the federal education system could be affected.

Active and retired workers at these institutions total around 400 thousand people. They therefore correspond to around a third of all federal employees, considering active and retired employees.

General mobilization

Also this Wednesday, the Forum of National Entities of Federal Public Servants (Fonasefe) promotes a national mobilization of federal public servants in different locations to pressure the government for readjustments. An event is scheduled in front of the Ministry of Management and Innovation in Public Services (MGI), at 10am.

The mobilization was called in response to the government’s proposal not to grant any salary increases to federal employees in 2024.

Wanted by Brazil in factthe Ministry of Education did not comment on the strikes.

The Ministry of Management and Innovation in Public Services reported that, in 2023, in addition to the 9% salary adjustment, it granted a 43.6% increase in food allowance for employees. This was the first agreement for adjustments reached between the government and employees in eight years.

The body added that, specifically for the career of educational administrative technicians, the Ministries of Management and Education created a Working Group (GT) to deal with the restructuring of the career plan. The GT’s final report was delivered on Wednesday (27) to Minister Esther Dweck and will serve as input for the government’s proposal on the matter, which will be presented at the negotiation table that the public authorities maintain with civil servants.
