As the UK prepares to leave the European Union, the TUC argues in their action plan that the first priority is to protect jobs and defend the living standards of working people.
TUC proposes specific actions which can be taken immediately or in the coming weeks, with regard to:
• protecting jobs, apprenticeships and livelihoods
• industrial planning, public investment in infrastructure and financial support for economic activity
• using government spending rather than monetary policy to stimulate demand, while still defending sterling
• protections for working people’s employment rights, pay and pensions, and the role of trade unions.
