Shell Ethiopia employees express thanks for help in settlement of dispute

Dear Mr. Donovan 

Kind and warm greetings! 

Today we have been advised by Shell Ethiopia Labour Union that the court case with Shell is settled through negotiation. We have forwarded the entire communication and scanned copy of the agreement in case you want to refer it. You will find it at the end of our message. As per the agreement, Shell agreed to restore the previous early retirement scheme with some modification. The new scheme is “the old scheme minus 4 months salary”.  

We will use one of our collegues case (how he will be affected) to illustrate this:

– With the original (old) scheme he could have gotten up to 45 months salary.

– With the changed (new) scheme he would have gotten only 22 months salary. 

– With the negotiated scheme, he would get 41 months salary 

If you recall there were some employees that would lose as much as 70% due to the change in the scheme. Now this loss is reduced to 10%. 

All affected employees in Shell Ethiopia highly recognize the role your web site played in promoting our cause. We strongly believe that this settlement would not have been possible had it not been for the intervention of your web site. For this, we would like to express our deepest gratitude on behalf of all Shell Ethiopia staff. 

GOD bless and thank you again!
