GMB Union says a lack of energy and industrial strategy has contributed to rocketing inflation and a ‘crushing’ cost of living crisis.

Andy Prendergast, GMB National Secretary, said: 

“Rocketing fuel prices and stagnant wages have left people with a crushing cost of living crisis. 

“Today’s rampant inflation figures have only been made worse by the lack of a proper energy and industrial strategy from this Government. 

“Inaction and a lack of gas storage has left the UK hostage to a global fuel crisis, left millions of households in fuel poverty and our national security under threat.

“Ministers must secure our energy future - committing to new nuclear to hit net zero - and address the wage crisis to tackle the cost of living and recruitment crises.”
