Extortionate electricity profits a slap in the face to workers and families – Archibald

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has said ESB’s announcement of €676 million of profits in the first six months of the year is a slap in the face to customers who have been struggling to pay their bills.

The East Derry MLA said: 

“These extortionate profits, which represent a 30% increase on the same period last year, are a slap in the face for workers and families who are struggling to pay their electricity bill. 

“These figures will be cold comfort too to customers of Electric Ireland, which is owned by ESB, who were recently left without power for days. 

“To date these customers have received no offer of compensation.

“Electric Ireland needs to compensate customers whose lives were disrupted after being left without electricity.”

Teachers deserve a fair pay deal that reflects their incredible work and commitment to our young people.

@ChrisHazzardSF joined with a delegation of teachers from the North to hand in a letter to the British Prime Minister calling for an immediate pay deal for workers.

Education workers deserve fair pay & working conditions.

With one party’s boycott of the Executive ongoing, the British Govt must urgently bring forward a pay deal for workers here.

We need an Executive restored now, & all parties working together to support workers & services.

In any other walk of life the person presiding over such a colossal failure would be sacked. The Minister for Justice is clearly not the person to restore people's confidence in public safety and she should resign.
