Unions threaten ‘waves of industrial action’ over UK cost of living crisis

No Comments

British unions are threatening a wave of coordinated industrial strike action in the coming weeks as millions of low-paid workers are reeling from the cost of living crisis.

The move, which includes the two biggest unions, Unison and Unite, comes as the British government fails to agree to a detailed package to help families, as the average gas and electricity bills are to rise by 80 percent.

On Friday, the Office of Gas and Electricity Markets (Ofgem) revealed a distressing 80 percent hike in electricity and gas bills, bearing testimony to the country’s exacerbating cost of living crisis.

The UK’s energy bills are set to jump to an average of £3,549 ($4,188) per year from October, Ofgem announced.
