Theresa May must protect workers’ rights post-Brexit, says union chief | Politics | The Guardian

Theresa May must give a clear commitment to match EU social protections after Brexit if voters are to trust her promise to put “ordinary working people” first, the TUC general secretary, Frances O’Grady, has said.

As the Conservatives put the final touches to their manifesto for the general election on 8 June, O’Grady, who represents almost 6 million working people, said the document should include a promise to ensure Brexit is not used as an excuse for a “race to the bottom”.

In particular, she would like to see the final Brexit deal that will determine how Britain trades with the EU in future include a promise not to undercut European social standards.
