Brexit Motion (No.14) Sanchia Alasia speaks at National Labour Link Forum 17

This is a little late but this was an important and succinct contribution on this motion by Sanchia.

"Good morning, my name is Sanchia Alasia from the Greater London region, here to speak in support of motion 14

Forum, we need to keep a close eye on the Brexit negotiations, so that public services, equality and health and safety laws are not weakened during the process. 

What the Tories call red tape, we call vital health and safety protections, anti-discrimination laws, equality legislation, the charter for fundamental rights, the social chapter, protection for those on maternity and paternity leave and protection for many part time workers like me.

We need to ensure that these hard won rights, fought for by the Trade Unions are not weakened in any way. If we look for example at the details that have emerged so far regarding the offer to EU citizens living here, there is a lot of information missing and a lot more work to do to strengthen the offer. We cannot allow Theresa May to take us to the cliff edge with noting in tow.

Support the motion so we can get the details that we need to make informed decisions for the negotiations that lie ahead.

Let’s stay united, let’s come together, one UK, one community".
