"The government must not use Brexit as an excuse to dilute health and safety protection in the workplace", says GMB Southern
GMB campaigned for an ‘angry remain’ in the 2016 EU referendum. Since this position was not supported by the majority of the electorate, we are determined to lobby for the best possible deal for working people.
We are concerned that a “Hard Brexit” could see the erosion of workers’ rights which are at present guaranteed under EU law. GMB will not stand idly by if this is threatening to happen, and will campaign tirelessly to ensure that the rights of ordinary working people are not thrown on the rubbish heap to help line the pockets of the wealthy few.
GMB Southern Region have commissioned a report detailing the potential impact of Brexit on the UK and specifically Southern Region.
The EU referendum was held on 23 June 2016, where the UK voted to leave the EU by 51.9% to 48.1% on a turnout of 72.2%.
