News : Teesside Npower Staff Facing Uncertain Future with Company Poised to Cut Jobs
Teesside, UK, March 7, 2016 -- Npower staff are facing an uncertain future after it emerged the energy firm will cut around 2,500 jobs.
The company has refused to comment on where the axe would fall - but around 100 workers from Teesside relocated to its Sunderland call centre in 2014, after Npower closed its Thornaby call centre.
The firm is expected to announce the cuts in its company results tomorrow, which are expected to hit areas including the North.
An Npower spokesperson said the company was speaking with staff today, following the reports.
Around 400 Teesside workers left the company in February 2014 when Npower closed its base at Phoenix House in Thornaby town centre .
The remaining staff opted to move to Rainton Bridge.
Meanwhile, Unison general secretary Dave Prentis has blasted the firm for dealing a "devastating blow" to the workforce.
"Npower has been in trouble for some time thanks to poor decision-making at the very top, and workers are now paying the price."
"Cutting a fifth of the workforce will leave the already struggling business in an even worse state. Now months of uncertainly lie ahead for a workforce whose morale is already at rock bottom."
The job cuts represent around a fifth of npower’s 11,500-strong UK workforce, Sky News said.
