The impact of Brexit on workers´rights

AK EUROPA, the Brussels Office of the Austrian Federal Chamber of Labour, and ÖGB Europabüro, the Brussels Office of the Austrian Trade Union Federation cordially invite you to our event:

Wednesday, 11th April 2018, 18h00
Venue: Representation of Baden-Württemberg to the EU, Europasaal
Rue Belliard 60 - 62
1040 Brussels


Many standards in UK employment law derive from EU directives. Once they are not protected by EU law any more they are at risk of being diluted or scrapped.

If workers´ rights are not upheld in the UK this could trigger a race to the bottom in EU countries as well. Safeguarding workers´ rights in the UK is therefore a key issue that lies in the common interest of workers on both sides of the Channel.

What will Brexit mean for workers? How will it affect employment law? What is the trade union perspective on safeguarding workers´rights in the ongoing negotiations on the framework for the future relationship between the EU and the UK?
