Oil workers are already organizing to carry out a national general strike in repudiation of this measure, in an attempt to reverse this decision.

The president of Sindipetro PR/SC, Mário Dal Zot, declared war against Pedro Parente and promises never-before-seen strikes. At the moment, meetings and assemblies are taking place to decide what would be the best ways to launch the strike, which according to Mario, can be indefinitely.

Fernando Maia, current director of the FUP, wants to carry out a strike equal to or greater than the one that took place in 1995, which also aimed at an embargo on possible privatizations of Petrobras. At that time, who was in the presidency of Brazil was Fernando Henrique Cardoso. The oil workers joined the strike and interrupted activities on the platforms, administrative units of the Petrobras, distribution terminals and refineries.

The launch of the national general strike against the privatization of Petrobras refineries, must take place after the meetings between April 30 and May 12, according to the FUP.
