Rebecca Long-Bailey on Npower’s plans to cut up to 4500 jobs

Rebecca Long-Bailey, Labour’s Shadow Secretary for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, commenting on Npower’s decision to cut up to 4,500 jobs, said:

“We need energy workers more than ever to improve the efficiency of our homes and roll out renewables, and customer service is an essential part of that. Job cuts on this scale, done to make a quick buck, are utterly senseless and illustrate how the energy market is failing to deliver for workers, customers or the climate.

“Labour will take the supply arms of the Big Six into public ownership to deliver an energy system that works for the many.”
