Commenting on the publication today (Monday) of the EU Council’s negotiating directives for the transition period of Brexit, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“The transition period must fully protect workers’ rights. Theresa May promised to protect workers’ rights, and the EU council guidelines are clear on this too.

“We hope the UK and the EU can quickly reach an agreement that retains a level playing field on workers’ rights. And it must make sure UK workers benefit from any new rights that the EU introduces during the transition period.”
