Teachers from the Federal District, who had been on strike since the last 4th, voted in a general assembly this Thursday morning (25th) to end the strike. The decision came after the presentation of a proposal by the Government of the Federal District in a meeting with the negotiation commission this Wednesday (24).
One of the reasons that the category justified for the strike is that, according to the ranking of the average initial basic salary of the 39 careers of public servants in the DF, which demand Higher Education, the public teaching career, composed of teachers and pedagogues, occupies the 36th position, while education assistance ranks 38th.

In addition to wages frozen eight years ago, teachers also face overcrowded classes, dismantling of EJA (Youth and Adult Education) and special education, delays in the transfer of the Financial and Budgetary Decentralization Program (PDAF) and impairment of pedagogical activities due to lack of structure and staff.
Among the proposal presented by the GDF, the following points stand out:
– Incorporation of bonuses for Pedagogical activities (Gaped) and Educational Support (Gase) in 6 installments of 5%, the first being paid in October 2023 until the first half of 2026;
– Negotiation of non-stop days;
– Presentation of PL for forecasting a 15-minute break and/or meal, in a period coinciding with the students’ break;
– Preparation of a new public tender in 2023 for public teaching career positions in the Federal District;
– Appointment of candidates approved in the public tender governed by Normative Notice No. 31/2022, for the positions of basic education teacher and pedagogue;
– Continuity of the negotiating table.
By decision of the majority voting in the General Assembly, the strike ends and public school classes return normally this Friday (26).

“Our pickets, acts, flyers, demonstrations, among other actions, made the government back down and review its position, presenting proposals that, even partially, dialogue with our demands. The suspension of the strike is not the end of the fight. We will continue to be in permanent mobilization, together, to go further, making the GDF treat public teaching with the respect it deserves”, said the Union of Teachers in the Federal District (Sinpro-DF) on a social network.
