Boris Johnson’s Brexit deal would trash workers’ rights. Here’s why that is important

If you are a working-age citizen of the United Kingdom, your rights are at risk from Boris Johnson’s Brexit.

What, you didn’t know? Where have you been?

Okay, I’m pulling your leg a little. The fact is that very few people are likely to be aware of the threat to your rights – because mainstream media outlets like the BBC aren’t reporting it.

It seems it’s sexier to make it about personalities like Boris Johnson.

So here’s a little video to give you a small idea of why your rights are important and what you may lose without even realising it:

Workers' Rights

Why does Jeremy Corbyn keep banging on about the protection of workers' rights in any deal with the EU? Why is the lack of protection of those rights such a sticking point for Labour in relation to Johnson's deal? A case in point comes to head on 2nd November when Asda workers have been told they will be sacked if they don't sign new contracts which, – remove paid breaks,- require more bank holiday work than now,- hit some night workers with pay cuts, and,- introduce more flexible conditions so staff don't know what times and days they will be working from one month to the next Asda is owned by Walmart. The Walmart family is the richest family on the planet. Senator Bernie Sanders attended their annual shareholder meeting in June where he said, “Despite the incredible wealth of its owner, Walmart pays many of its employees starvation wages, wages that are so low that many of these employees are forced to rely on government programs like food stamps, Medicaid and public housing in order to survive,” Sanders said. “Frankly, the American people are sick and tired of subsidizing the greed of some of the largest and most profitable corporations in this country.”This is where YOUR job is heading without guarantees on worker protections which only Corbyn's Labour will secure.

  1. Not just working-age benefits. Should the Tinpot Dictator hand our NHS to the likes of Unum or Kaiser Permanente together with the rest of Trump’s cohort of health insurers there’ll be no more “free at the point of use”. I wouldn’t get health insurance together with many others. Not forgetting that most of us have already paid a lifetime’s NI contributions and taxes.

      You are entirely correct in that analysis. I concur.
