Dal Zot (on screen) said that reform represented the return of patronage.

Representatives of employees of public companies criticized on Wednesday (11) several points of the proposal on administrative reform, which is being analyzed by a special committee of the Chamber of Deputies. In their view, the text of Proposed Constitutional Amendment (PEC) 32/20 helps to dismantle the structure of the Brazilian state in favor of “political patronage” and privatization. A public hearing was proposed by MPs Rogerio Correia (PT-MG) and Thiago Mitro (Novo-MG).

“This is the provision of social rights and national sovereignty to the market. This is the return of clientelism, political patronage and favoritism, ”said FUP spokesman Mario Alberto Dal Zot.

Dal Zot also said that the PEC could perpetuate the so-called “rift,” a practice in which an employee transfers part of what he receives to the person who pointed to him. “This must be taken into account. A worker, a civil servant will serve a politician or a boss much more than a citizen. “

Civil servants work in indirect government (mixed economy and state-owned companies) and are regulated by the Code of Labor Laws (CLT). Despite the fact that job stability is not guaranteed by law, practice shows that unfair dismissals are rare.

Civil servants, on the other hand, work in direct government (Union, states, Federal District, municipalities, autonomies, and public funds) and are governed by other laws that guarantee job stability, except for good cause layoffs.

Cecilia Garces, Vice President of the Employees Association of Banco do Brasil (Anabb), said the PEC intends to restrict rights, weaken government activities and promote privatization. “This proposal undermines collective agreements and facilitates layoffs. Servants will be held hostage by the government, and equipment for public services may appear. For her, a simple comparison with private initiative does not guarantee efficiency and does not prevent corruption.

Maria Rita Serrano of the Caixa Econômica Federal and spokesman for the National Committee for the Protection of Public Companies told the special commission that the government is using the wrong premise: the public is bad and ineffective, and the private is good and modern. “This PEC introduces a number of distortions as it always views the private sector as the best. Why did Caixa alone serve 130 million Brazilians during the pandemic, even if employees were at risk? ”He asked.

Maria da Peña: “Public and private employees achieve equal treatment”

government position
Maria da Peña da Cruz, representing the Ministry of Economy, said the PEC aims not to cut costs, but to bring the civil service closer to Brazilian realities. “The text is moral in nature, corrects historical distortions. In today’s world, such a differentiated treatment of civil servants does not make sense, ”Cruz said. She stressed that the planned changes only apply to new employees.

Maria da Cruz spoke in detail about the proposals and defended, for example, a ban on certain benefits for civil servants, such as leave of more than 30 days, career growth and additional ones related to work experience, retroactive increases, and reduced working hours. without reduction of remuneration, surcharge for replacement, etc.

She also stressed that the forecast for recruiting fixed-term staff through a simplified selection process should only be tailored to specific situations (disaster, emergency, temporary needs and on-demand actions), and said that stability should not be ensured to the public. employees, neither collectively or individually, nor by regulation. “It requires equal treatment of public and private employees.”

In addition to MP Rogerio Correia, who proposed the meeting, MPs Paulo Ramos (PDT-RJ), Professor Israel Batista (PV-DF), Rui Falcao (PT-SP), Gervasio Maya (PSB-PB) and Ze Neto (PT -BA) … According to Correia, the PEC does not intend to guarantee the effectiveness of the civil service, but rather facilitates its dismantling. “If the government is concerned about distortion, it should include members of parliament, the prosecutor’s office, the Supreme Court and the military in the proposal. Here they are worried about the reduction not of benefits, but of workers’ rights, ”he said.

Gervasio Maia and Paulo Ramos advocated that the PEC text clearly state that the rules do not apply to current employees and civil servants.

Representing the National Confederation of Municipalities (CNM) at the meeting, Elena Garrido said that many courts in the country have passed decisions extending stability, legally guaranteed only to civil servants, to employees of state-owned and mixed-capital companies.

“Our position is to support recruitment from the CLT. [Consolidação das Leis do Trabalho]but without any rule of stability, not even cultural, as now, with the possibility of dismissal due to low productivity, lack of need and good reason, without the need for an administrative process, ”he said.

CNM also supports a rule that provides for temporary contracts as a way to avoid the fixed costs of the temporary needs of municipalities.

The dollar continues to reflect the political scenario

Yesterday, financial agents evaluated the opposite decision of the Federal Supreme Court (STF) regarding the so-called secret budget. In addition, a decision was made by STF Minister Gilmar Méndez to issue an injunction that would exclude the Bolsa Família from the spending cap rule, with investors trying to understand how this measure would affect the processing of the transitional PEC in the Chamber of Deputies. Oh this PEC!!!!

Since he is an exchange investor, any reading that the budget will be exceeded or become more flexible will negatively affect the exchange market, whether through the PEC or in any other way. We will continue with volatility today.

Looking beyond, the US Central Bank (Fed), although slowing down the pace of monetary tightening at its December meeting, issued a tougher-than-expected statement warning that its fight against inflation was not yet over, raising fears that rising US interest rates will push the world’s largest economy into recession.

The currency market continues to react to political news. The voting on the PEC is saved for today. It is expected that it will indeed be reviewed to open the way tomorrow for discussions on the 2023 budget.

Yesterday, the spot price closed the selling day at R$5.3103.

For today on the calendar we will have an index of consumer confidence in the eurozone. Good luck and good luck in business!!

The EU has reached a political agreement on limiting gas prices – 19.12.2022



Germany sentenced Russian to life imprisonment for political murder by order of Moscow - 12/15/2021
BRUSSELS, DECEMBER 19 (ANSA). European Union countries reached a political agreement on Monday (19) to impose a natural gas price ceiling of 180 euros per megawatt hour (MWh). The main sources of income for Russia and the minimization of the use of energy as a weapon by the regime of Vladimir Putin.

The agreement was approved by a supermajority at a ministerial meeting of member states in Brussels, Belgium, after months of discussions about the best way to contain the rise in natural gas prices in the bloc caused by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. .

The value set by the countries is well below the proposal made by the European Commission, the EU’s executive body, in November: 275 EUR/MWh. However, the countries leading the cap campaign were in favor of an even lower limit, around 100 EUR/MWh.

Germany, always wary of price controls, voted in favor of 180 euros, while Austria and the Netherlands, also skeptical of the cap, abstained. Hungary, the most pro-Russian country in the EU, voted against.

The instrument will enter into force on 15 February, but only if natural gas prices on the Amsterdam Stock Exchange exceed 180 euros/MWh for three consecutive days. In addition, the difference compared to a number of global benchmarks should be more than 35 euros.

Italy, the EU’s biggest supporter of the ceiling, has claimed responsibility for the measure. “This is a victory for Italy, which believed and worked for us to reach this agreement,” Environment and Energy Minister Gilberto Picetto tweeted.

“This is a victory for Italian and European citizens who demand energy security,” he added.

Currently, the gas price in Amsterdam is around 110 EUR/MWh, which is already a reflection of the agreement in Brussels – in August the figure even broke the barrier of 340 EUR/MWh.

However, Russia has already threatened to stop exports to countries that adhere to the ceiling. (ANSA).
