The collective is preparing the National Day of Struggle in defense of IBGE and its servers, which is why they will mobilize this February 15 in front of state units as part of a call that will culminate in a strike of federal officials starting on March 9.

The general call specifies that the protests are also taking place over the emergency wage readjustment of employees and the demand for the opening of wage negotiations with the government of Jair Bolsonaro.

A note from the IBGE Workers Union specified that since 2015, the institute has not renewed its permanent workers and since that date it has lost almost 1,500 employees due to retirements and dismissals, which corresponds to a 25 percent drop in its staff.

“In order to continue fulfilling its work plan, IBGE abuses the use of temporary work. Being already the majority in the agency and supporting the collection of investigations, temporary workers have a fragile employment relationship, with monthly contract renewals, very few rights and a remuneration of one third of an effective career official, "argued the note issued by Workers.

In the same way, the group that mobilizes delimited that another of the worrying situations in Brazil under the management of the head of state Jair Bolsonaro is the accumulated inflation in the country, which affects these workers.
