GMB, the energy union, has responded to hundreds of further job losses announced today as the latest part of a reduction of 4,000 jobs in the company’s customer business by 2020. 

Justin Bowden, GMB National Secretary, said:

“Centrica’s still falling share price tells you everything you need to know about the state of the company and how it has been run over the past few years.

“British Gas cannot just cut its way out of a crisis, largely of its own making, simply by slashing jobs and trying to offshore.

“There has to be investment, innovation and a proper plan and vision for the future that reverses customer losses, produces growth and puts right some deep-seated cultural issues.”
