Panel SA: Nurses return to debate stoppage because of the salary floor

The National Forum of Nursing meets this Wednesday (4th) to discuss again the possibility of a strike against the suspension of the new salary floor for the category.

According to Solange Caetano, who represents the FNE (National Federation of Nurses) at the forum, the idea is for it to be a nationwide movement, as happened in September. Last year, the category also met in another protest, but concentrated in Rio de Janeiro.

Sanctioned by Bolsonaro in August and suspended by the STF the following month, the new national nursing floor is the sector’s biggest complaint.

The law does not indicate the cost of wages, which provoked a reaction from employers against the minimum wage. The case is under analysis by the STF, but Congress approved two amendments last month that unlocked public funds to pay for public hospitals and SUS care networks.
