COMMITMENT TO A CUSTOMS UNION WOULD PROTECT JOBS, SAYS GMB
Union says squabbling ministers and weakened PM have put UK jobs at risk
GMB trade union today welcomed Labour’s commitment to a customs union, pointing out the risks to jobs posed by the Prime Minister.
The commitment came in a speech from Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn about Brexit at the National Transport Design Centre at Coventry University.
Tim Roache, GMB General Secretary said:
“Squabbling ministers and a weakened Prime Minister have put UK jobs at risk.
"The Government’s approach to Brexit would have a negative impact on many industries where our members work.
“By committing to a customs union, Labour is showing clear leadership that would safeguard our ports, transport firms and manufacturing sectors.”
