In 2009 the combination of EDF Energy and British Energy formed one of the UK’s largest energy companies. The combined business is the UK’s biggest producer of electricity and together provides power to a quarter of the country’s population. EDF Energy now employs around 17,000 people at locations across the UK.
Prospect is one of the four trade unions formally recognised by EDF and we represent a range of specialist and professional staff across all parts of the business including control room operators, graduates, project managers, engineers, finance, HR and all other specialist staff.
We represent members on all matters including pay, grading and terms and conditions as well as providing individual representation where necessary.
Prospect is, and has been, heavily involved in supporting members through key issues, such as pensions reform and the restructuring programme, and is also actively involved in discussions about future company changes which will affect our members.
A key area in which Prospect has been involved is the new nuclear build project at Hinkley Point C. Prospect has been and continues to be a strong supporter of EDF's plans for new nuclear power stations at Hinkley Point C and at Sizewell and beyond and w have recently negotiated a collective agreement for staff on the New Nuclear project.
We are proud to say that we have a very active network of well trained and approachable representatives across all of our sites.
