“Government has whitewashed workers’ rights” – Thompsons’ on new Brexit stance
Thompsons’ Solicitors have accused the government of “completely whitewashing” workers’ rights from its revised stance on Brexit.
The firm has released a briefing on the issue, together with a statement saying: “This isn’t a case of protection for workers being pushed to the bottom of the pile – it’s a case of them being ignored altogether.
“In reading government’s revised proposals we note there is no mention of workers’ rights whatsoever. Even the meaningless and already-inadequate protections featured in Annex 4 to Theresa May’s original Northern Ireland Protocol have been expressly deleted – showing how little value this government places on the rights of working citizens.
“This so-called ‘deal’ will be as bad for workers’ rights as the threatened no-deal Brexit, and is a troubling sign of things to come under Johnson’s premiership.”
