刚刚收到一份易趣老员工写给eBay CEO惠特曼的一封信,在这封信中,原易趣员工对eBay与TOM在线的交易中,员工的利益被漠视表达了强烈的不满。据这份邮件透露,eBay要求易趣员工今天必须签署与eBay终止劳动合同的协议,并且不提供任何补偿。但员工的不满并未得到eBay方面的任何回应。

附1:在发给我的邮件中的附言:2006年12月20日,eBay和TOM在线联合宣布了两家公司将携手组建一家合资公司的消息,我们在这个对外宣布的消息中没有看到对eBay中国员工的任何安排。

同一天,公司也组织了员工大会,再一次显示了对eBay中国员工的不公平:对于公司卖给TOM,如何安置员工方面,公司进行了简单介绍和答疑,对于员工的一些疑问,公司代表含糊带过,或者会场不做任何明确的表态。之后也没有派专人做进一步的解释,也没有任何正式公开的文件出来。

对于这样的处理方式,有些员工在答疑会上当场提出疑问,很多员工当场表示反对,但是公司高层管理者之后都借口度假,要到2007年1月4日才回来,对eBay中国员工的不满都置之不理。而据可靠消息,2007年1月4日,该合资公司的批复就会由外经贸委下发。

公司的这种做法是对中国员工极不负责任的表现,更不用提公司代表在员工公开会议上作出虚假和误导的陈述。

eBay作为国际知名的网络公司,一直宣导并要求员工遵守EBAY的文化,即五个价值观:

  1. 我们相信每个人都是“性本善”
  2. 我们尊重每个人,每个人都是独一无二的
  3. 我们相信每个人都在某些方面对公司有贡献
  4. 我们鼓励员工“你想别人怎么待你,你就先怎样对待别人”
  5. 我们相信一个诚实、开放的环境能为员工带来最好的价值

作为弱势群体,作为eBay在中国的员工,我们一直深信公司的这种价值观,从来没有产生任何怀疑。但是公司这次的处理方式,使中国员工都无法理解,eBay公司对中国员工的承诺以及对中国市场的承诺怎么可以在一夜之间全部改变??因此我们希望公司对于这次合并以及善后事宜给中国员工一个明确的答复和妥善的安排。

我们再次强烈呼吁:

  1. 公司派专人给eBay中国员工明确详细的书面解释;
  2. 为eBay服务多年并深信eBay理念的员工,希望公司能给予中国大陆员工一个妥善的处理:

作为eBay中国的员工,长期以来,我们一直在eBay倡导的文化和价值观中工作着,我们也深信公司会给予我们一个合理的解释和安排。同时,我们也殷切期盼社会,政府,IT互联网各界支持我们,为中国互联网营造一个积极健康的环境!

所有eBay中国大陆员工(475人)

附:这封公开信我们发给MEG已经3天,没有收到任何回复。

今天客服近300人已经接到HR通知,今天必须签订和eBay终止劳动的协议,如果不签,就没有任何补偿。明显在恐吓员工。

附2:易趣老员工致eBay CEO的一封信

尊敬的Meg,

这封邮件来自原易趣家庭的老员工们,自从2002年eBay并购易趣后,我们这批人就全身心地、勤恳并忠心地为eBay工作着。

首先,我们祝你节日快乐!其次,我们也想让你知道,对于你为了确保eBay业务在中国的持续成功而和本土公司如TOM结为合作伙伴的举措表示感谢!并且,对于你在这个艰难的转换期为了我们的遣散费而做的努力,我们也深表感谢。

然而,对于公司目前对员工的安排和处理,我们都心存忧虑,而且,我们中国员工都清楚地认识到,在新的合资公司里,我们将面临各种困难和潜在的风险。

在过去的几年中,尽管eBay中国的高级管理层一直在变动,我们中的许多人始终很努力地为eBay中国工作,四年过去了,我们一直被这些高层盲目地指引着。然而,在不断出现的艰难和挑战中,我们一直坚持着,因为我们对于这个业务模式充满热情,也坚信通过我们的能力最终可以让eBay的中国业务得到发展。在过去的几年中,我们不认为您听到了我们的心声和担忧。现在,我们最后一次恳请你听一下我们目前所处的困境。

从技术层面上说,eBay选择和TOM合资一个新的公司,本质上说就是停止了eBay易趣的市场业务。根据中国的法律,eBay应该公正合理地给予员工补偿,这意味着:

  • 从遣散费的最低底限来看,所有的eBay中国大陆员工可以得到一个“工作年限+1”的补偿,eBay也计划提供这个最低遣散费,我们对此也表示感谢。但是,作为美国一个知名跨国的大公司,并一直对外宣称“最在乎员工”的企业文化,我们觉得eBay应该有更大的社会责任心,给予中国员工比这个最低底线再多一点的补偿。
  • 而且,所有的eBay中国大陆员工的有效劳动合同是到2007年8月底终止,既然我们是被迫终止和eBay和劳动协议,我们所有的eBay中国大陆员工还是愿意继续为eBay服务。(不是因为我们大家工作业绩不好,而是因为eBay公司自己决定结束eBay易趣的业务),所以对于劳动合同中剩下的几个月,我们应该得到合适的补偿。

针对eBay要废除当初给予我们的员工期股,我们也想强调几点:

  1. 许多易趣老员工的工资都是低于中国其他跨国公司的平均工资水平线,因此eBay给的员工期股被认为是这个差别的补偿,如果eBay把当初给予员工的期股拿走,我们认为这是掠夺我们的应得的收入;
  2. 而且,许多易趣老员工拿到的是吸引人的期股价格,但要到2007年9月1日才能全部授权拿到。虽然员工期股被认为是公司给予员工的特别待遇,而不是公司义务,但是我们觉得公司不能因为要新成立一个合资公司,而拿走当初承诺给予我们易趣老员工的特别待遇。我们在新合资公司中的工作内容和职责都将和之前相同,因此,公司给予我们的补偿应该保持对员工的吸引力,而不是削减。我们感觉到新合资公司将给予的补偿安排,或者说,到目前我们听到的,是很少的。公司没有理由要废除之前给予我们的目前授权实施的员工期股,为此公司应该给予我们一定的赔偿。

我们也了解到新的合资公司为了保留eBay中国大陆员工,有一个保留计划,但是我们认为这个保留员工的计划充满了不确定因素和风险。TOM的文化完全和eBay不一样,我们认为这会影响到我们的工作士气。保留计划中我们也看不到任何承诺关于新合资公司的管理层不会终止和我们的劳动协议。在新的合资公司中,我们的劳动安全和职业发展都将受到严重的影响。因此,我们认为,对于我们将面临的新增的风险,eBay公司应提前给予适当的补偿。

总得来说,我们大家对于现在公司的安排很伤心、生气,非常地失望,不管我们在过去的几年中,一直对eBay组织忠心耿耿地服务,并遵守我们对eBay的承诺,但是我们还是被eBay抛弃了。eBay对中国员工的承诺以及对中国市场的承诺怎么可以在一夜之间全部改变了??这样的情况下,我们很多人无法全心地为新的合资公司服务,而且也将会导致eBay在中国新的战略的一个风险隐患。

对于广大eBay中国大陆员工来说,进入到新的合资公司中,尽管我们将面临很大的不确定因素和风险,但是我们还是愿意帮助eBay努力工作,但是也希望您能理解我们的状况。我们希望你能够真诚地考虑一下我们这些多年来一直全心全意服务于eBay中国业务的员工们的请求!

真诚地向您致敬!

所有易趣老员工

附3:A message from the Eachnet staff to Meg

Dear Meg,

This email comes from the marketplace employee members of the Eachnet family who many have served whole-heartedly, diligently, and loyally since the eBay acquisition in 2002. Firstly, we would like to send you well wishes during this holiday period. Here, we are writing to inform you that we are grateful you have taken steps to ensure continued success of the eBay business in China by partnering with a local entity such as TOM. Additionally, we thank you for making efforts to compensate us with a severance package through this difficult transition period. However, we have concerns about the current offer and believe that the potential risks that we will be facing in the new JV are not fairly factored into it.

Many of us have worked very hard in these past years through the numerous changes of often inadequate leaderships in China. Four years have come and gone and we feel, at time, we have been blindly guided. However, we stuck through the difficult and challenging time because we believe and are passionate about the business and our ability to make it work in China. We do not believe our voices have been heard and our concerns have been addressed in the past years. Now, we are making a final plead for you to hear our plight.

Technically speaking, by eBay choosing to form a JV with TOM, it is essentially closing down its eBay Eachnet marketplace business. According to Chinese law, it should compensate its employees appropriately and fairly. This means:

  • At a minimum, all employees should receive a severance package of one month pay and additional months based on each employee's year of service here. eBay has offered this and we appreciate it. But, as a large U.S. multinational company which has always preached that it takes care of its employees, we feel eBay should have greater social responsibility by offering more than just the minimum.
  • Also, all employees currently have an effective employment contract with eBay that lasts until August 2007. Since we are forced to terminate the contract with eBay (not based on our poor performance but due to the company's own decision to close down ), we should be appropriately compensated for the remaining contract terms.

Regarding the rescission of our eBay options, we would like to highlight the following points:

  • Many of the old Eachnet staff's base salary are on average ranked far below those at other multinational companies in China. The eBay options were viewed as a way to make up for that deficiency. If this is taken away from us, we feel we are being robbed of our income.
  • Furthermore, many Eachnet employees who have received grants with very attractive strike price will lose the remainder of their options into September 2007. Even though options are viewed as a privilege and not an obligation to employees, we feel that this privilege should not be taken from us just because the company decides to form a new structure. Our job responsibilities will remain the same and therefore the compensation scheme offered to us should remain attractive and not be downgraded. We feel that the new JV compensation scheme, or what we have heard of it so far, is sparse. By rescinding our unvested options for unfounded reasons, eBay should properly compensate us for this.

We realized the new JV has put forth a retention package for all marketplace employees. However, we believe the proposal contains many uncertainties and risks. TOM has a very different work culture ( extremely hierarchical) and management style (very bureaucratic) which we believe will impact our work morale. There are no guarantees that the new management team will not terminate us at will. Our job security and career development are highly vulnerable in the new JV. Hence, we believe the added risks we will face should be adequately compensated in advance.

In summary, many of us are sad, angry, and very disappointed by the current proposal. We feel we are being abandoned despite our commitment and loyalty to the eBay organization in these past years. You had faith in us when you first decided to enter China. But, it would be extremely difficult for a lot of the employees to get motivated by the new JV and thus this would put another eBay China venture in jeopardy. We want to help make it work but we hope you will understand our plight as well. We ask that you find it in your heart to seriously consider our requests given our many years of committed service to the eBay Eachnet business in China.

Sincerely,

The Eachnet family
