As if the various reports of moral harassment and at least one case of serious sexual harassment were not enough, Panko Daykoval has come up with another case. On Monday the 25th, he announced a 19% annual increase in the workers’ health plan, and worse: shared participation, which had never existed before.
To make matters worse, both the amendment and shared participation will be retroactive to September 1st. In other words, workers who have taken an action will be charged fees as of September 1st. There is also information that the bank did not offer the dispensary option, which would make the health plan burden the workers’ pockets.
The bank workers are angry and have sent several complaints to the São Paulo, Osasco and District Bank Workers Union. They rightly complain that this adjustment and participation was not done transparently, but was merely imposed by the bank. “In addition to the serious harassment issues, Daycoval also decided to make its employees’ health plan more expensive in this imposed manner, and without any prior dialogue. Many workers complain that they should have at least been informed that they would be charged for the actions implemented in September,” This never happened. This is disrespectful. “The union will ask for clarification from the bank,” says the entity’s Secretary General, Lucimara Malachias.
