AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Employees of Royal Dutch Shell on Friday decided to stop their strike action in the Netherlands, after unions agreed to a new wage offer by the oil and gas company.

Strikes which started on April 8 at the 400,000 barrel per day Pernis refinery, Europe’s largest, and the Moerdijk plants will be suspended while union members vote on final approval of the offer put forward by Shell, union CNV said.
