Commenting on the publication today (Wednesday) of a draft withdrawal agreement for the departure of the UK from the EU, based on the agreements reached by the UK and EU27 in December, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“The draft text would deliver the Prime Minister’s promise of no hard border in the island of Ireland after Brexit.

“Now she must face down the hardliners in her party, and put all options for a final deal back on the negotiating table. That’s the best way to protect jobs, rights at work and the Good Friday Agreement.”
