In a country hit by a shutdown that has opened a hole in GDP and dug a deep crater in support of the Temer government, little is known about the large mass of Brazilians who are at the center of this mobilization – the truck driver.

Typically referred to as autonomous, almost a “petty bourgeois” to speak sociologically accurate, the typical trucker is one of the great losers of labor deregulation and the impoverishment of middle-income activities, a long-course process, long before labor reform passed in the last year, which gave the final blow of 70 years of CLT.

“There is a series of evidences of the complete lack of autonomy of these autonomous,” write Vitor Araújo Filgueiras, a professor at the Federal University of Bahia, and José Dari Krein of the Institute of Economics of the University of Campinas, in the article “The root of the truckers strike and the regulation of labor “, available in the electronic mail of the Humanitas Unisinos Institute.

“What exists is a disguised employment relationship,” Professor Dari Krein points out in an interview with 247.

This is not a baseless estimate, but a strong color frame of social regression. Filgueiras and Krein reveal in their text that in 2012 audits of the Ministry of Labor in only 9 companies in the field found a total of 92,654 truck drivers who worked as employees without a formal contract, being hired as self-employed individuals or linked to 20,458 outsourced legal entities . These same audits have identified 472,606 workdays exceeding the 10-hour limit and have not found it difficult to conclude that most of the accidents involving cargo trucks are linked to the fatigue caused by journeys beyond the account.

The table of changes for the worse was not limited to this, however. By expelling employees from their internal framework, carriers have not only got rid of labor rights, social protection and employee retirement. They were also able to shed much of the fuel, tire, and maintenance expenses, transferred to former employees, now as “autonomous” – with whom they were able to negotiate on more than favorable terms for their accounting. In many cases, they were themselves in charge of finding financing for the trucks of the former employees, who thus, in an esdrúxula way, became responsible for the payment and conservation of their instruments of work. From the available data, among the 1.6 million freight vehicles in circulation in the country,

“The main trait of this work, beyond appearances, is the trucker’s subordination to the company, setting a typical clear working relationship,” says Dari Krein. Thus, drivers negotiate deadlines and schedules, under conditions imposed by the contracting company, which sets deadlines, targets, fines and controls each satellite / GPS trip. No longer salaried, they make freight their source of remuneration, which explains their particular commitment in recent days to the reduction of tolls for empty bodies, and especially the war for the reduction of the price of diesel – each price jump, to please the minority shareholders, mostly foreigners, implies a reduction of their earnings.

At this point, the dismissal of rights as workers has transformed the struggle for recognition of employment bonds as the main claim of truck drivers in recent years. They have won victories and defeats in inferior instances in the Labor Court. At the end of 2017, however, the carriers filed a lawsuit with the STF and were victorious thanks to a favorable ruling from Luiz Roberto Barroso.

In this environment, it is not difficult to understand the demonstration of a combativity long dammed, we will combine.

According to Minaspetro, 71.3% of the establishments surveyed are already totally without fuel

POSTED ON 05/25/18 – 10:53

The situation at the gas stations in Minas Gerais is increasingly critical due to the truck drivers’ standstill. According to a survey carried out by Minaspetro and released on Friday morning, about 93% of the establishments are already depleted because of the strike.

The entity that represents the dealers of fuels in Minas Gerais carried out the survey in 115 positions. 71.3% of them no longer have more than one type of fuel available. Another 21.7% have only one type of product – or alcohol, or gasoline or diesel.

The research also indicates that in about 9.6% of the stations surveyed the remaining fuel will end soon.

Regions

The research indicates that the situation is serious in the regions that concentrate the largest number of resales, mainly Belo Horizonte and metropolitan region, South of Minas, Zona da Mata and Triângulo Mineiro.

Supply

Approximately 60% of the stations surveyed are supplied by the Gabriel Passos Refinery (Regap), in Betim, which is still blocked by truck drivers and representatives of the Union of Fuel Transporters and Petroleum Derivatives  (Sindtanque) since last Tuesday (22) .
