Minister says that adjustment of public servants depends on revenue

The Minister of Management and Innovation, Esther Dweck, said that the readjustment of public employee salaries in 2024 will only happen if there is “excess” government revenue. Entities that represent Union employees charge a salary adjustment of 34.32%, divided into three installments, in 2024, 2025 and 2026.

“We still have the challenge of reaching the zero goal [déficit primário] to have this surplus of revenue”, Dweck told journalists this Monday (5).

The government proposed an adjustment of 9% to the category divided into two installments of 4.5%, in 2025 and 2026, in addition to 9% in 2024. According to Dweck, the proposal represents an increase of more than 18%, which it would be above the 16.5% inflation forecast for the period 2023-2026.

The government’s proposal also includes an increase in aid, such as daycare, healthcare and food. For the minister, this was the way the government found to benefit all employees equally.

Thus, the food aid would increase from R$658 to R$1,000; daycare assistance from R$321 to R$484.90; and health aid from R$144 to R$215.

“I could take this amount and distribute it as a percentage. I wouldn’t even give 2% to everyone. This, obviously, would give more value to those who earn more. The higher your salary, the higher the 2%. We thought this was a little unfair”, said the minister.

The category’s counterproposal was sent to the Ministry of Management and Innovation last week. In it, the Permanent National Forum of Typical State Careers (Fonacate), the Forum of National Entities of Federal Public Servants (Fonasefe) and trade union centrals ask for a 10.34% adjustment in 2024, 2025 and 2026 for federal public servants who have signed, in 2015, agreements in 2016 and 2017.

And for employees who signed agreements for four years (2019 to 2019), the category wants an adjustment of 22.71% divided into three equal installments of 7.06%, in 2024, 2025 and 2026.

The minister also informed that her department is preparing an ordinance with rules and criteria for organizing public careers. The ordinance will not have an imposing nature, according to the minister.

It’s how we imagine careers should be designed, with more levels, rules for progression, discipline based on length of service,” he said.
