Commenting on the governmentâ€™s announcement about workersâ€™ rights, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: â€śAny guarantees about protecting existing and ensuring future employment rights must be in the Prime Ministerâ€™s withdrawal agreement.
â€śAnything less, and the promises arenâ€™t worth the paper theyâ€™re written on.
â€śEuropean laws have made working in the UK safer and better. Brexit mustnâ€™t mean UK employees become the cheapest to hire and the easiest to fire.
â€śNo-one should be hoodwinked into thinking that this is a good deal for workers. It isnâ€™t.â€ť
