In an attempt to put an end to the movement of stoppage, the federal government is considering restoring part of the budget allocation planned for the Federal Revenue, which had a cut for this year of R$ 1.2 billion.
According to reports made to CNN by government advisors, the possibility began to be discussed over the weekend between the ministries of the Economy and the Civil House.
The attempt is, at this moment, to try to reconstitute, through budgetary reallocation, at least half of the reduced amount, with the promise of new contributions in the second semester.
In an interview with CNN, the president of the National Union of Tax Auditors (Sindifisco), Isac Falcão, said that, with the current budget forecast, the structures will not function normally from the second half of the year.
In late December of last year, Internal Revenue Service auditors approved a shutdown and “standard operation” at border checkpoints to put pressure on the federal government.
In private conversations, the Minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, has stated that he is not against budgetary recomposition, but that it is not the time for salary readjustments. The fear is that the benefit for one category triggers a ripple effect with the other categories.
For this reason, the federal government has resisted regulating the so-called variable efficiency bonus, claimed by the Federal Revenue Service employees.
The draft of a decree that makes the measure possible, with a budget forecast, is already in the Civil House, but, according to presidential advisors, it should only be published from the second quarter onwards, to avoid pressure from other categories.
In 2015, there was an agreement with the federal government on the subject. In 2017, legislation was enacted to institute the bonus. To date, however, it has not been applied.
For this Tuesday (18), a strike is scheduled for servers of the Federal Revenue Service and the Central Bank. The objective is to pressure the federal government to meet the claims of the categories.
