The STF considered constitutional the Provisional Measure n. 936, which admits the reduction of working hours and wages through individual agreements. By majority, with seven votes in favor of constitutionality and three against, the STF overturned an injunction that had conditioned the validity of the agreements created by the Provisional Measure in question to the consent of unions. As a result, employers and employees have greater legal certainty when signing such agreements during this period of economic crisis aggravated by COVID-19. The decision was issued in Direct Unconstitutionality Action No. 6.363.
