TUC position on Brexit

10/09/2018

Just over 200 days until the UK leaves the EU, we’re at crisis point.

The Tory government has comprehensively failed to negotiate a Brexit that protects the jobs, rights and livelihoods of working people across the UK.

We don’t represent the elite, the establishment or the business owners and bosses.

We stand for ordinary working people, who deserve a chance at a better life. And we need a Brexit that makes that possible.

Today, I want to give the Prime Minister notice that if her deal doesn’t deliver for working people, then this country’s trade unions will mobilise to win a deal that does.

TUC General Secretary
