Postal workers will have a salary increase of 9.75%


Correios employees received a salary increase of 9.75%. The percentage was set in court, after judgment in the TST (Superior Labor Court) this Monday (22), and is valid in wages and food and meal vouchers. The increases are retroactive to August, which is the base date for the category.

According to Sintect-SP (Union of Workers of the Brazilian Post Office, Telegraph and Similar in São Paulo, Greater São Paulo and the postal area of ​​Sorocaba), the Judiciary also determined the reinstatement of the 15% surcharge referring to the work performed on Saturdays .

The communication director at Sintect-SP, Douglas Melo, cites another point in the judgment that he considers a victory for workers, which is the veto to the creation of a bank of hours.

Melo says that the reactivation, in the collective agreement, of a clause that provides for the existence of the CIPA (Internal Commission for Accident Prevention) was also defined in all units, not just large ones.

In the unionist’s opinion, the result of the judgment is positive for the workers. “It was a significant victory, considering this entire process involving the category, which is fighting to keep their jobs and against privatization,” he says.

“We had been without a collective agreement since August 1st. We had several meetings with the company and mediation with the TST, but there was no success. There were punctual strikes in some parts of Brazil, but in São Paulo, there was no strike,” he adds.

According to the union leader, the category comprises approximately 15 thousand workers in the city of São Paulo and 40 thousand in the state.

Wanted to comment on the judgment, Correios said only that “the company awaits the issuance of the certificate of the judgment that took place yesterday (22), at the Superior Labor Court.”

against privatization

After the victory in court, Melo says that the category is committed to overturning, in Congress, the bill 591, which deals with the privatization of Correios. The bill is being analyzed by the Senate’s CAE (Economic Affairs Commission).
