The Ministry of Management and Innovation in Public Services made official, this Tuesday (14), the proposed salary adjustment for federal public servants in 2023. The text sent to the entities representing the category presents a linear adjustment of 9% from 1st of May, in addition to an increase of R$ 200 in food allowance.

The correction will cover the entire remuneration of the employees, which includes additional bonuses and bonuses incorporated into the salary, and the increase will be linear as of May, paid in June. There will be no retroactive payment. The document was signed by the secretary of Personnel Management and Labor Relations, Sérgio Mendonça.

The new readjustment proposal is higher than the 7.8% presented at the 1st meeting, on February 16, but lower than the 13.5% readjustment that the civil servants asked for in a counterproposal. The document was sent to the categories, which must endorse the values ​​by the end of the week.

According to the Ministry, the impact of the readjustment is already foreseen in this year’s budget, in the amount of R$ 11.2 billion. With the increase in expenses, the government committed itself to sending a bill to the National Congress to amend the Annual Budget Law. Therefore, the correction will come into force after it is endorsed by deputies and senators, and sanctioned by President Lula.
