The Brazilian customs strike, which began in November of 2017, resumed on Monday, August 6th 2018 due to failure from the Government to fulfill the agreed upon terms.
The strike had been suspended after the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Rodrigo Maia, pledged to work with the President of the Republic, Michel Temer, for compliance of a wage agreement in 2016. The suspension of the strike was conditioned to return if the agreement was not followed.
According to the Union of Customs Agents (Sindifisco), there is no deadline for the end of the strike. In this period, only the services considered essential by the government will be maintained by Customs; such as the release of medicines, hospital supplies and live animals.
