GMB Trade Union - Centrica profits must be reinvested in workers

GMB, the energy union, has responded to today’s financial results from British Gas parent company Centrica.

Andy Prendegast, GMB National Secretary, said:

“It’s good to see Centrica back in profit.

“But GMB won’t forget this comes off the back of a demoralised workforce working longer and harder to deliver them.

“A good chunk of this cash must be reinvested in the employees, to help the company recruit the staff and engineers needed to service the millions of customers - not to mention the hydrogen technology necessary to cut heating costs in the future.

‘The bottom line is, this Government’s broken energy policy allows soaring profits at the expense of basic need - while bills skyrocket.”
