Commenting on the latest round of Brexit negotiations, which ended today (Thursday) with no agreement on several crucial issues, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“The Prime Minister’s high risk strategy of flirting with a no deal Brexit has failed. Negotiations are still in deadlock, and workers and businesses have been put at greater risk from a Brexit cliff edge.

“The Prime Minister must act to protect national stability, and to safeguard workers, businesses and the economy. That means staying inside the single market and customs union for the transitional period. And it means keeping single market membership on the table as an option for our future relationship with the EU.”
