SPP holidays called ‘unethical’

The SPP state gas utility regularly sends its employees on seaside resort holidays, most of whose costs are met by the utility under a collective labour agreement covering the years 2001 to 2003. Members of political parties, which today debate a rise in consumer gas prices for the utility, have called the subsidised holidays unethical given the extra money the company is now demanding citizens pay for its products.
