Federal police will do standard operation at airports

Federal police will do next Thursday (19) a standard operation in Brazilian airports to protest against outsourcing to core functions of the Federal Police (FP). According tothe president of the National Federation of Federal Police (Fenapef) Marcos Wink, the purpose is to attract the attention of the government without harming the users ofairports.

Wink said that the unique functions of the FP are gradually being outsourced by the government. “The contractor should be used for middle activities, never for end activities. They are trying to outsource people to have a police activity, such as authorizing the entry of foreigners into the country. ”

On the day of the standard operation, the police will alert the population to insecurity at airports and check the documentation and luggage of all passengers boarding or landing in the country. “This work should be routine, but for lack of effective is not done. We’re doing this to show the precariousness of the FP service. ”

For the president of Fenapef, besides the lack of conditions to work, the police are also affected by the lack of salary increase. “From 2002 onwards, the Federal Police had the lowest rate of wage increase. Was 78% [of readjustment] while other institutions have had 400% [of increase]. We are the group that has the lowest salary within the executive. “Currently, the starting salary of an officer is about R$ 7500.

In the next 24th day, the Fenapef will make a general assembly to decide what the next steps of the movement. According to Wink the category may decide, even if a strike will begin. “Let’s get together and see what we do. A strike is not ruled out. ”
