TUC tells May to take back control
TUC general secretary Frances O’Grady said: “We are now over half-way from the referendum to Brexit day. But working people still don’t know what kind of Brexit they will get. And they still don’t know if their jobs and rights will be protected.
“To get a good deal in the precious time left, the Prime Minister must take back control. She must stand up to the Brexit extremists who are hijacking her government, sabotaging negotiations, and creating chaos as a ladder for their leadership ambitions.
“It’s time for a new approach that puts the national interest first. The Prime Minister should form a negotiating team that genuinely represents the whole country. Let’s call it ‘Team UK’. It would bring together every UK nation, all the main parties, business and unions. That way we can get on with negotiating a deal that protects Britain’s workers and British business.”
