Petrobras strike

The FUP maintains stoppages of oil and gas activities at Petrobras units, even under a fine of 500 thousand reais per day if they insist on the strike. Know which services will be affected

The national oil workers' strike began today at 0:2 this Wednesday, with an expected end date on June XNUMX, even so, it can extend for much longer, if the category deems it necessary. The oil workers have as axes of this mobilization the demands for a reduction in the prices of fuels and cooking gas, maintenance of jobs and resumption of domestic production of fuels, an end to imports of gasoline and other petroleum derivatives, an end to privatizations and dismantling of the Petrobrás, and resignation of Pedro Parente from the Presidency of Petrobrás.

Superior Labor Court denied the right to strike

The TST (Superior Labor Court) did not recognize the legitimacy of the national oil workers' strike and ordered all entities of the category not to proceed with the act, under penalty of 500 thousand reais per day if the measure was not complied with, the FUP and its affiliates naturally keep the act. Minister Maria de Assis Calsing, who filed the lawsuit for AGU and Petrobras, said that the category's demonstrations are of a political nature and have nothing to do with the defense of workers' rights, but to take a ride on the truck drivers' strike, causing even more damage to the fragile moment of the Brazilian economy, since without oil production in this period, it represents a loss of millions per day to the state-owned company.

Activities that will be stopped

According to the general schedule of Oil Tankers (which may vary according to the unit), operations and offshore/onshore/administrative activities must be stopped immediately. Here are some procedures:

  1. Offshore – Production must be handed over to the contingency teams and if it is not possible to proceed, it must be interrupted with the disembarkation of the teams.
  2. Refineries – Demonstrations will take place within the units, this measure applies to both operational and administrative areas
  3. Air Support – The teams must attend only emergency flights or landing of striking workers.

According to the category, there will be no significant damage to production and there is no risk of shortages. Two refineries had already anticipated the strike on the 28th, find out which ones they are here.
