Luxembourg - Union worried about social aspects of Brexit - August 31, 2016

The LCGB trade union underlined during a special press conference that the social aspect of Brexit is its main concern. The union stated that it is not acceptable that talks are only about financial aspects of Brexit for the 6,000 British residents in Luxembourg. What about working situations? What about housing? Health? Rights to pensions? With that in mind LCGB sent an open letter to the government stating that their stance is that everything should be done in their power to maintain the current status quo of the British residents in the country and indeed the 1,200 registered young Luxembourgish students in the UK.
