The state and the private company Ecomouv ‘, which was originally in charge of collecting the environmental tax finally abandoned by the government, have reached an agreement of 839 million euros compensation for breach of contract.
“The state plans to fix that in 10 years: a first payment of EUR 580-590 million by the end of February 2015 and 30 million euros yearly over 10 years” told AFP the CGT of Ecomouv Olivier Kamiri, confirming a report in the RMC radio.
The state and Ecomouv ‘had until December to agree on the penalties to avoid going to litigation on this point. However “Ecomouv always has the opportunity to go to litigation” against the state in the future, as the € 839 million are “a part of remedies” against the shortfall on the exploitation of environmental levy set in the original contract Ecomouv, which was “2.5 billion euros” in total, warned Mr Kamiri.
Ecomouv had announced on December 9 cessation of its activity and the dismissal of its 200 employees following the decision of the State on October 30 to terminate his contract with the company.
Some 150 employees Ecomouv ‘are based in Metz, where the company had installed its operational center.
“No new state”
Under the agreement reached with the state “Ecomouv ‘ will be a little less bloodless “financially, as the company should” provision more money for social, so we hope that the PSE will be correct, “added Mr. Kamiri.
” We have no new state “has instead criticized the union, while the end of November while traveling in Lorraine Francois Hollande had received unions Ecomouv ‘Metz and promised them a state support, including a guarantee a year’s wages.
