GMB Trade Union - Sizewell C funding 'huge stride towards low carbon'

GMB, the energy union, has welcomed the £100 million Government funding pledged to support the continued development of the Sizewell C project in Suffolk.

Charlotte Childs, GMB National Officer, said:

“This is much needed and welcome news and a massive huge stride towards a low carbon UK.

“We face an unprecedented energy crisis and we need nuclear projects like Sizewell C to protect consumers, workers and our planet.

"GMB has worked closely with EDF throughout the development of Sizewell and look forward to the more detail discussions needed to shape industrial relations in the future.

"Net zero needs new nuclear and we are proud GMB members will be part of the team that brings low carbon energy to the UK."
