#EUref: Brexit risks our employment rights


On Thursday 23 June British voters will decide if Britain should continue its membership of the European Union or leave.

Working people will have a big stake in the referendum because workers’ rights are on the line. The TUC is concerned that leaving the EU puts at risk many vital workplace rights currently underpinned by EU law – paid holidays, extra maternity rights and better conditions for part-time workers, as well as many better jobs in export-reliant industries.
