It’s down to Parliament to ensure Brexit is in the interests of ordinary people, says UNISON

Commenting on today’s Article 50 ruling by the Supreme Court, UNISON general secretary Dave Prentis said:

“The government has been thwarted in its plans to rush the UK into a hard Brexit. It’s now down to Parliament to ensure that the interests of ordinary people and their need for decent public services are at the heart of the plan to leave. Ending the anxiety felt by many EU nationals working in our schools, hospitals and town halls and protecting the many employment rights that began life in Europe must be high on the list.”
