Orlen and PGNiG merger set for November

EU conditions are the sale of 30 percent of Lotos refinery and 400 of its petrol stations.

The time has come in the process of merging large companies when it is time to reassure employees. The presidents of PKN Orlen, Daniel Obajtek and PGNiG, Paweł Majewski, sent a joint letter to employees of the PGNiG capital group.

“We are committed to implementing the great project of merging with PKN Orlen. Relations with employees are of key importance in this process,” writes Paweł Majewski, president of PGNiG, on Twitter.

“That is why, together with the president of PKN Orlen, we conduct an intense social dialogue. Today we sent a joint letter to the crew” – he added.

In the process of merging large companies, there is always a reorganization of activities, as a result of which some employees may lose their jobs, and some may be pressured to lower their wages. PKN Orlen and PGNiG are comparable economic organisms.

The originally planned date of joining was to end at the end of 2021. At the same time, Orlen Lotos was to be taken over by Orlen. Here, however, the conditions set by the European Commission stand in the way. The time for their implementation is extended by the European Commission until November 14.
