GMB Scotland Media Statement
Responding to the latest round of job cuts in Centrica, GMB Scotland Organiser Hazel Nolan said:
“It’s the continued collapse of a once great British institution ahead of what will surely be a set of disastrous results next month.
“Iain Conn is battling to save his skin on the back of a loyal workforce - thousands of livelihoods have already been lost and thousands more will pay the price for Conn’s rotten leadership.
“Let’s be clear that without intervention, sooner or later Scotland will suffer more pain; we expect a continued wave of cuts in the months to come and that’s more bad news for the fragile Scottish economy
“Iain Conn cannot keep cutting his way out of a crisis, Centrica will have to come forward with a credible recovery plan that reverses years of customer decline, defends jobs and works for the public interest.”
