It’s a grim economic forecast for the UK, according to the Resolution Foundation, living standards have taken the biggest hit in a 100 years.
UK energy regulator “Ofgem” is to investigate suppliers who switch vulnerable energy customers to pre-payment meters by force.
Energy supplier Centrica is expecting an almost eightfold increase in net profit. This at a time where 34% of adults in Britain face a choice between ‘heating or eating’ due, among other things, to a twofold increase in energy prices in the last year.
The Workers Party of Britain denounces the attempt by Centrica to use the threat of sacking to bounce its engineers and service staff into new and inferior contracts, and salutes the decision of GMB members to resist, planning strike action in January.
The Workers Party of Britain supports GMB Scotland’s campaign calling for a £2 an hour increase in the basic rate of pay for ALL key workers.
