Commenting on today’s (Tuesday) speech by Brexit Secretary David Davis, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:

“David Davis lacks a plan to deliver a ‘race to the top’. And many of his Conservative colleagues say that they want ‘Mad Max’ cuts to workers’ rights and consumer standards.

“To prove his intentions, the Brexit Secretary should keep staying in the single market on the negotiating table. Of all the current options, it’s the best platform for a race to the top, and the best protection against a race to the bottom.”
