Jobs and living standards must not be sacrificed because of Brexit uncertainty, delegates at the TUC Congress have been told.
NASUWT delegate Peter Taylor, speaking to a motion on EU workers and free movement of Labour, said it was right that the trade union movement ensured that all workers in the UK and Europe did not pay the price of Brexit.
He told the gathering in Brighton: “As a trade union movement, we must campaign to defend the rights of the public who depend on the public services our members provide.
The UK’s future, post-Brexit, depends on us having a society and economy that works for everyone. That means investing in high-quality public services and ensuring that our public services continue to deliver for everyone.
Whilst the Brexit negotiations continue, we must have a Government which addresses the public concerns which resulted in the Brexit decision.”
The concerns included job insecurity, declining pay and living standards and under-investment in public services.
He added: “The Government needs a coherent Brexit strategy which not only addresses the challenges and uncertainties associated with leaving the EU, but is also predicated on increased investment in public services and delivering better living standards for all.”
