Federal education employees have been on strike for more than a month and continue strikes across the country. At the last negotiation meeting, on Friday (19), the Ministry of Management and Innovation in Public Services (MGI) announced the proposal of 9% from January 2025 for the career restructuring of technical-administrative staff (TAE ).

However, the National Union of Basic, Professional and Technological Education Servers (Sinasefe) classified the proposal as “derisory and disappointing”.

The administrative technicians stopped on March 11th. Since then, they began a general strike movement that now includes federal basic education schools and federal institutes of technical and professional education. In addition to membership of federal higher education universities.

But despite the national strike indication approved for April 15th by the National Union of Teachers of Higher Education Institutions (Andes-SN), on March 22nd, for federal universities, the adherence of all institutions is unknown.

Strike update

The administrative technicians have been on strike for 44 days and Sinasefe marks 20 days of strike for federal basic education teachers this Tuesday (23). According to the Sinasefe National Strike Command, professionals from 70 union sections joined the strike. The union already has a membership of 519 units of the Federal Education Network in the 26 states and the Federal District. Check the table with all institutions on the union website.

There are cases and cases among universities, as not all of them joined the strike on April 15th. A survey of the news portal G1 carried out on the 15th in all states and the Federal District showed that at least 52 federal universities went on strike on the indicated date, as is the case of the Federal University of Minas Gerais (UFMG).

But the Faculty Association (Aduff-SSind) of the Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF) held simultaneous assemblies in the seven cities where it is present on April 18, three days later. And so it approved teachers’ adherence to the national strike at federal higher education institutions from April 29th.

Who decides on the strike?

Most cases involve a separate decision between the National Union of Teachers of Higher Education Institutions and the teachers’ unions at the universities themselves. This was the case of UFF and is also the case of the Federal University of Goiás (UFG), which released a statement warning that it would take an internal decision within the scope of the three institutions that make up it.

“The Adufg-Sindicato informs that any decision regarding a possible strike or strike involving teachers at federal universities located in Goiás (UFG, UFJ and UFCat) will be taken by the category, as the union entity is autonomous and not a union section” , stated the note published on April 15.

According to the Teachers’ Union of the Federal Universities of Goiás (Adufg-Sindicato), the UFG assemblies take place this Wednesday (24) in Catalão, on Thursday (25) in Goiânia and on April 30 in Jataí. Therefore, UFG is not on strike and it is not possible to know whether the university will join before all the assemblies.
