The Speaker of the House, Arthur Lyra (PP-AL), has stated that he will refer Bill 2564/2020 to the College of Leaders, creating a national floor for nursing professionals, and the debate begins in the House of Laws Still this week, as stated by the Federal Council of Nursing ( Coffin). The article, written by Senator Espirito Santo Fabiano Contarato (Reddy), was approved by the Senate on Wednesday (24).
The initial offer from Contarato provided a monthly salary of R$7.3 thousand for nurses, R$5,100 for nursing technicians, and R$3.6 thousand for nursing assistants and midwives. The value set by the project was, in the case of nurses, a 30-hour week. In the case of longer working hours, the national minimum salary is proportional.
For the project to go to the Senate floor, concessions had to be made. The floor value for nurses was R$4.75,000 for a workload of 40 or 44 hours, depending on the work contract.

As for the salaries of assistants and midwives, 50% of what will be paid to the nurses, totaling 2,35 thousand Brazilian reais.
