An offsite meeting is being held this week to bring all Shell Stanlow employees – union and non-union – up to date with what the Unite Union has been doing since news of the Shell Strategic Review was leaked.
It will also be an opportunity for them to listen to some guest speakers, ask questions and raise any concerns they may have.
· Andrew Miller, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston
· Graham Daley, Full Time Official (Unite the Union)
· Mark Lyon, Grangemouth Convenor and GEC member
· Ian Proudlove, Grangemouth Senior Steward.
According to a well informed source, the meeting was hastily arranged in response to Shell’s leaked plans to auction the refinery. One speaker is breaking his journey home from London to Scotland to attend and another driving down from Scotland specifically for the meeting.
Self-explanatory extracts from a Shell Stanlow insider who contacted us
It would appear that Shell are about to shaft their on shore employees in the same manner as your article on the disgraceful treatment of its North Sea oil workers and also its African staff. If the leak of information had not occurred I am sure that Shell would not have informed its staff until a sale had been made.
