The ADPF (National Association of Federal Police Delegates) approved, in an assembly held yesterday and the day before yesterday, strikes to pressure the government to promote the restructuring of careers. In a note, the association cites “disrespectful” treatment given by President Jair Bolsonaro (PL) to the corporation.
Second, for the ADPF, the strikes will be partial and progressive, and the calendar will still be defined together with the other categories of the PF (Federal Police).
Another proposal approved in the assembly was the resignation request of the Minister of Justice and Public Security, Anderson Torres, “due to the disrespect and disrespectful treatment given by the President of the Republic to the Federal Police and to the minister himself”. Torres is a PF delegate.
It was also decided by the category that associates will be able to surrender leadership positions and refuse invitations to assume new positions.
The ADPF reinforces the gravity of the moment and the position of the President of the Republic, who, after publicly committing himself and already with a budget set aside for the restructuring of careers, decided not to honor his word, generating a climate of revolt and generalized dissatisfaction never before seen among PF servers Excerpt from a note released by the National Association of Federal Police Delegates
The arm wrestling between the PF delegates and the government occurs after Bolsonaro guaranteed, in January, that he would give a raise to federal police, prison agents and federal highway workers. The government, however, backed off and announced that it would grant a 5% readjustment to public servants.
The class felt betrayed, as it expected the use of R$ 1.7 billion from the budget for a career restructuring, which would grant a greater readjustment and other benefits to the police officers.
According to the entity, the devaluation of the federal police implies the weakening of the fight against corruption and organized crime. “It is important to highlight that public security was the BIGGEST campaign banner of the Bolsonaro government and the outstanding work of the security forces has been misused by the president as a marketing tool for his reelection. Federal police officers deserve respect”, he says. still the communiqué.
