Brexit - get a deal done!

Brexit - Get A Deal!

On December 31st, 2020 the UK's Brexit transition period ends.

The UK and European Union are currently discussing what comes after transition and how we will trade with one another - but time is running out.

While we are no longer a member of the EU, it remains our largest trading partner and the future success of many of our industries depends on getting our new relationship right.

Unite has long campaigned for a Brexit which supports our members' jobs and sustains the communities in which they live.

We need a deal that allows factories to continue to receive the components they need to create the products our members produce.  

From car manufacturing to pharmaceutical production, food processing to warehouse distribution, working people need a deal that keeps our country moving and our shops filled. 

Take one industryautomotive. It relies on 1100 trucks delivering parts from Europe every day for it to function successfully. Now truck drivers carrying those components and other goods to and from Europe face the prospect of border chaos, delays and even fines.

There will be thousands of similar examples up and down the country.

Our very deep concern now is that with only weeks until we leave, a deal on decent terms will not be forthcoming.

That is why we are urging our members and their families to put pressure on those who can deliver on the deal that's needed.

Please lend your voice to this campaign.

The Covid-19 crisis has endangered our health and caused deep harm to our economy.   There is every risk that our country could experience its worst recession in 300 years.

A bad Brexit deal or no Brexit deal will make things worse for working people.

So our message to the government and to MPs is clear: Get a Deal.  Send that message to them today.

UK car manufacturing needs a decent trade deal, not delay and chaos. Our message to @BorisJohnson is #GetADeal 

 

UK car manufacturing supports millions of UK jobs.  These workers need a decent trade deal because cars can't be built when components are stuck at Dover. @BorisJohnson #GetADeal

 

1100 trucks deliver components to UK car makers every day.  Cars can't be built if these trucks are stuck at Dover.  Save jobs, protect UK manufacturing. @BorisJohnson #GetADeal
