Fenae warns of new political uses for Caixa



Chamber analyzes requests for persecution and political use of Caixa

Written in BRAZIL in

The Caixa Econômica Federal sexual and moral harassment scandal has ended three months since the first complaints were discovered, and the National Federation of Caixa Staff Associations (Fenae) is still awaiting a response to a letter sent to the president of the state bank. , Danielle Marquez. In the document, Fenaeh demands information about the specific results of Kaisha’s investigations.

As the Federation notes, 90 days after the start of the revelations [em 28 de junho] – which led to the fall of the then president of the institution, Pedro Guimarães – the bank and the government only opened internal disciplinary proceedings. So far, however, neither Guimarães nor other top managers accused of harassment by dozens of victims have been harmed.

“Since June 28, 2022, Caixa Econômica Federal employees have been living in deep fear and anxiety,” the letter, signed by Fenae President Sergio Takemoto, underlined. “(…) the ongoing investigation cannot be forgotten,” says the document, also addressed to the chairman of the board of directors (CA) of the state-owned company, Rogerio Rodriguez Bimbi.

Sergio Takemoto points out that in Brazil, sexual harassment is a crime defined in article 216-A of the Criminal Code, punishable by one to two years in prison. “If the guilt is found and proven, you will not be able to “put your hand on your head” just because you are the former president of the bank. If he is guilty, he must be held accountable under ordinary justice for what he did, since sexual harassment is a crime punishable by the Penal Code. In addition, labor law also provides for compensation for damages caused to victims,” he adds.

The political use of the box is During this period of waiting for a response from the bank to allegations of harassment, there were new situations of political use of a state-owned company in the middle of the election campaign. On the 12th, the Caixa Board of Directors called a press conference to release data on the Caixa Pra Elas program. For Caixa employee and labor leader Rafael de Castro of the National Confederation of Financial Workers (Contraf-CUT), the program was used to campaign for President Jair Bolsonaro.

The director notes that on this occasion, the bank announced an increase in card sales by 65%. [para o público feminino]. According to the director, from the beginning of August to the middle of this month, about 60,000 calls were made related to the products included in the Caixa Pra Elas basket.

“That gives an average of 15 calls to a bank branch: less than one call per day,” he explains. “The numbers tend to increase as employees are required to meet goals,” says Castro.

Another case – Rafael de Castro also draws attention to the news regarding other allies of the current president. This is the case of Deputy Leader of the Government in the House, MP Ubirathan Sanderson (LP). Although a Caixa staff member reached out to a parliamentarian back in 2020, detailing situations in which Pedro Guimarães could harass her, the deputy leader [que é policial federal de carreira] did not initiate a case because, according to him, he was waiting for the victim to “return with evidence”.

“The deputy fled from the testimony of the victim. He preferred to leave the complaint unaddressed and demand evidence in the case, which, as you know, is done in such a way that no traces are left,” the leader criticizes.

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).
