UNISON reacts to Brexit draft deal between the UK and the EU
Commenting on the news that the Prime Minister has secured a Brexit deal between the UK and the EU, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said: “More than two years after the referendum, Theresa May is still prioritising party over country.
“Any deal that fails to protect public services, defend rights at work and avoid a hard border in Ireland is a deal that’s bad for all of us. Theresa May is in power but she isn’t in control.
“And if she can’t get a good deal, she needs to call a general election so we can elect a Parliament that will.”
