In February, 80.4% of wage adjustments were above inflation measured by the National Consumer Price Index (INPC). This is what informs the bulletin Salariômetro, from the Institute of Economic Research Foundation (Fipe), released this Friday (24), in São Paulo. In February 2022, this same proportion was 23.9%.
In 10.6%% of the negotiations in the second month of the year, the readjustment was equal to inflation. In 8.9% of the agreements, the workers had real wage losses. The median floor was R$ 1,391.00.
The March preview points in the same direction: 88.5% of the readjustments should be above the INPC. Until the closure of the bulletin, 52 instruments were tabulated. Fipe points out that these preliminary results are subject to sample fluctuations and may change.
Monitoring of collective negotiations is done through agreements and conventions registered with the Mediator of the Ministry of Economy.
Fipe collects the data and information available in the system, tabulates and organizes the values observed for 40 results of collective bargaining, gathered in agreements and conventions and also by economic activity and economic sectors.
