Robin Hood Energy Wins First Major Trade Union Contract
Robin Hood Energy have today (Thursday 15th
August) announced an agreement to supply one of the largest trade unions with
100% green electricity* from 1st September.
The Public and Commercial Services Union
(PCS) is the UK’s largest civil service trade union who also work in the private
sector, usually in areas that have been privatised.
Robin Hood Energy’s ethos as a company
played an important part in the negotiations. As an organisation, trade unions
are famous for championing the rights of workers across the UK and ensuring they
get the best possible conditions. Similarly in the energy market Robin Hood
Energy has spent the last four years helping to redress the balance in the
energy industry in favour of the consumer and championing the public’s right to
access fairly priced energy.
Scholes, Chief Executive Officer for Robin Hood Energy said: “It’s
great to partner with PCS on their energy needs. They like us spend their days ensuring
members get the best possible deals or conditions in the workplace. This is
exactly what we have been trying to achieve in the energy market, so it’s a
natural fit for us as a business to work with an organisation like PCS.”
Serwotka, General Secretary for PCS, said: “I’m very pleased that PCS is the
first national Trade Union to switch our energy contract to Robin Hood Energy.
Their publicly-owned, not-for-profit ethos and values fit with our view that
services are best run for public good and not for private greed”.
Robin Hood Energy is now urging other Trade
Unions to join PCS and take their energy supply from the UK’s first publicly
owned not-for-profit energy company. Our dedicated business team can be
contacted on 0800 0121 661, Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm, or you can get a quote
