United Kingdom - How to safeguard workers’ rights under Brexit? - March 31, 2017

The triggering of Article 50, the start of two years of negotiations about leaving the EU, has led to an enormous press coverage. In a blog, the question is raised what the real agenda is for unions and working people in what appears to be merely an act of political theatre. The trade union confederation TUC, commented on the draft guidelines published by the Council of the European Union on the EU’s principles and approach to the negotiations. According to the TUC the type of transitional agreement option, with a prolongation of EU acquis, would provide stability, continuity and certainty for workers’ rights and trading rights within the single market until a new trade deal is reached, thereby avoiding a damaging period of high tariffs and additional bureaucracy while a new trade is being negotiated.
