Embargo: For immediate release
Responding to confirmation that the referendum has resulted in a vote to leave the European Union, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
"The British people have made their views clear.
"As the UK prepares to leave the European Union, the first priority now is to protect jobs and defend the living standards of working people.
"The government must urgently set out a plan to defend UK industry and keep British jobs. That means defending the pound and stimulating the economy.
"Working people must not pay the price for the decision to leave the EU."
