Teachers from the municipal education network in the capital of Minas Gerais carry out a mobilization agenda this week at the Municipality of Belo Horizonte (CMBH). Last Wednesday (8), the category went to the offices of the Legislative House to dialogue with the councilors of the municipality.
With the actions, the teachers intend to press for the approval of amendments to the Bill (PL) 338/22, presented by the Union of Workers in Education of the Municipal Public Network of Belo Horizonte (Sind-REDE/BH).
Approved by the House Committees, the PL 338 deals with the salary readjustment of the category. The project, whose vote in the first round should take place this week, guarantees the proportional payment of the National Salary Floor for teachers.
Among the amendments proposed by Sind-REDE/BH are the readjustment to retirees with parity in relation to the others, the withdrawal of performance evaluation as a condition and the maintenance of the career structure of the category.
“Our claim is to match the salary of retirees with active workers, because we can no longer go up in careers”, explains Eliane Guedes, a retired teacher.
Eliane also said that the category has faced difficulties to access the CMBH.
“Our mobilization has been constant for over a month. However, in recent days, they are making it difficult for us to enter the Chamber. On a day they say that only five people can enter each office. The other day, they say that only one can enter and so on”, added Eliane.
The expectation is that, after the vote in the first round, the House Committees will analyze the amendments and that the project will be voted on in the second round, already with the incorporation of the proposals.
