UNISON calls for aaction on trade deals with global South which stress liberalisation and threaten to damage economies and workers’ rights
Union will be producing information for members from the EU and their families to reassure them of their rights
UNISON is seeking advice from the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) .
Although UNISON is encouraging a Remain vote, it’s clear that there are arguments for leaving the EU. But they aren’t being made by the bilious, hate-filled campaigns aiming to drag us into international isolationism. They deserve our unreserved condemnation for their baseless attacks on immigrants and fear that diminishes their case and this entire debate.
Like UNISON, Jeremy Corbyn has long-standing criticisms of the European Union, but also appreciates what membership provides for the British people – especially in terms of workplace rights, equalities and protections.
