CPTM proposes an agreement to employees
In a statement, CPTM regretted the strike decision and reported that it was proposing an agreement to the workers.
According to CPTM, it is inadmissible that the union representing the employees of the 11-Coral, 12-Sapphire and 13-Jade lines decides to go on strike in the midst of an overwhelming global economic crisis, even with the entire adult population vaccinated, harming also to citizens. who depend on public transportation to get to and from work, including frontline workers in the fight against Covid-19.
The Company regrets the decision to strike and hopes that, out of respect and consideration for citizens who need public transportation, not all employees of these rail lines will participate in this strike. Reinforcing that 80% of employees must work at peak hours and 60% at other hours, by decision of the Labor Court, with a penalty of R $ 100,000 per day. In order to serve all the people who need public transportation, especially those who work in essential services, the company will also work with a contingency plan.
Although it was severely affected by the reduction of passengers due to the pandemic in 2020 and 2021, CPTM keeps salaries and benefits updated, with an average salary of around R $ 6,500, given that Brazilian workers have an average income of R $ 2,500.
It is difficult to understand that these unions do not live in the reality of the rest of the country, which suffers from job losses, loss of income and hunger.
CPTM presented a proposed readjustment of 6% retroactive to March 2021, paid as of January 2022. In relation to the collective agreement for 2020, a readjustment of 4% was proposed as of August 2021, retroactive to March 2020 In addition, the payment of the PPR in two installments (the first already paid on 08/10 and the other half on January 10, 2022).
