Category maintains stoppage after Metrô does not accept conciliatory proposal from the Public Ministry of Labor

ALLISON SALES/FOTORUA/ESTADÃO CONTENTStrike by subway workers in São Paulo will continue this Friday, 24

The metro workers’ strike São Paulo will continue this Friday, the 24th, for the second consecutive day. The information was confirmed by Union of Subway Workers. The Metropolitan Company of São Paulo had until 23:00 this Thursday, 23rd, deadline given by the category, to accept the conciliatory proposal suggested by the Ministry of Labor (MPT). However, there was no response until the time set by the union, which had already given a positive signal to the proposal during a hearing held this Thursday at the Regional Labor Court (TRT). At the hearing, the company maintained its position of not accepting the claim for payment of salary bonuses or revocation of dismissals. On that occasion, the MPT suggested payment for one year of salary bonus. The union said it would be equivalent to R$ 2,700, an amount considered low by the category. Even so, the union decided to accept the proposal. As the company did not take a stand, subway workers will continue with the stoppage. On the first day of the strike, this Thursday, the lines affected were Blue, Green and Red. Metrô announced that it will continue with the contingency plan this Friday. If it is similar to the first day of stoppage, Line 1 – Blue will run between Ana Rosa and Luz stations. On Line 2 – Green, circulation took place from Alto do Ipiranga station to Clínicas. Line 3 – Red ran from Santa Cecília station to Bresser-Mooca. Line 15 – Silver remained closed.
