SSE-NPOWER MERGER

Ms Roseanna Cunningham MSP has commented on the announcement today by Scottish & Southern Energy (SSE) of an intended merger with npower.

Ms Cunningham said:

"SSE is a major employer in my constituency and while I welcome the assurance from them that there are no direct implications for jobs or the offices in Perth, I know full well that any merger almost inevitably means a reduction in the total number of employees as duplication of roles can not be sustained.

"Changes of this nature are understandably disconcerting for employees and they are very much in my thoughts at this time of uncertainty. I would urge SSE to be as open and inclusive as they can possibly be in keeping staff informed.

"I sincerely hope that any changes in job numbers can be managed to avoid redundancies and that SSE will continue to be a leading local employer and significant component in the Perthshire economy."
