Tackling European-wide issues with Unite

I met with Unite the Union and fellow Labour MEPs about Trump’s steel and aluminium tariffs and Brexit, both of which threaten British jobs and our economy. We also discussed specific cases where Unite were supporting workers with threats to their working conditions imposed by their employers.

Unite are clear that working people did not vote for attacks on their jobs, employment rights and living standards and so they are working for a deal that protects workers and industry, something I wholeheartedly support. Unite are lobbying the Conservative government for tariff-free access to the EU to enable the UK to continue to be economically attractive and to protect British jobs.
