Unite Response To May’s Brexit – Workers Rights Proposals

Unite General Secretary Len McCluskey

Government workers’ rights plans fall woefully short, says Unite

Government proposals to protect workers’ rights after the UK leaves the European Union will do little to stop the mistreatment of workers at the hands of ‘greedy bosses’, the leader of Britain and Ireland’s largest union, Unite said today (Wednesday 6 March).

Responding to the government’s plans, Unite general secretary Len McCluskey said: “After all the talk and media briefing preceding this announcement, it is deeply disappointing that the government appears not to have listened to any of the concerns expressed by trade unions.

“Workers needed assurances but unfortunately all that is on offer is reheated leftover announcements. The mistreatment of workers at the hands of greedy bosses is set to continue.

“The fact remains that workers in the UK have among the poorest protections in Europe, thanks to ‘opt outs’ by successive Westminster governments. This announcement changes that woeful situation not one jot.”
