Commenting on the news that RWE npower has become the latest energy giant to raise its gas and electricity prices way above inflation rates, Dave Prentis, General Secretary of UNISON, the UK’s largest union said:
“These latest price rises are the highest yet and will bring misery to millions of households this winter. It is scandalous that these energy companies are out of control and ofgem needs to get a grip and rein them in.
“We cannot have energy companies acting purely in the pursuit of profit and holding customers to ransom. One after another they are announcing prices rises that are way above current inflation rates.”
