Commenting on the announcement that the proposed merger between energy firm nPower and SSE is no longer happening, UNISON national energy officer Matt Lay said:
“Bringing together the parts of both companies that look after residential customers was meant to secure jobs and ensure both firms had a future.
“Now the deal is off, employees will feel understandably anxious about what’s to become of them. Both companies must now act quickly to end the uncertainty, and reassure staff.”
