Back British Gas workers

British Gas was once a great company, but the company has been let down by successive regimes of mismanagement.

Every time the “solution” has been to cut jobs, pensions and working conditions whilst the gravy train to the top brass has changed little. Our members have done everything they’ve been asked, always on the promise that this will lead to prosperity - but it hasn’t.

After months of pressure from MPs of all parties and even the Conservative government, the company will not take its widely condemned ‘fire and rehire’ threat off the table and so GMB was forced to ballot for industrial action.

Now GMB British Gas workers, engineers and agents, will stage a total withdrawal of labour for five days this week.

It’s time to ask why a company that made operating profits of almost a billion pounds is provoking an engineers’ strike over fire and rehire pay cuts in the depths of winter.

The initial stoppage will be for a five-day strike which will run from Thursday 7 January through until Monday 11 January.
