Community trade union have today become the latest organisation to back a People’s Vote on whatever deal – or no deal – Theresa May comes back with.
Welcoming the decision, Anna Turley MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:
“It is hugely welcome that Community have become the latest trade union to back a People’s Vote on the final Brexit deal. They know better than anyone that a chaotic Brexit would damage jobs, manufacturing and workers’ rights across the country.
“This is a campaign that is powered by the people, and this announcement will see tens of thousands of Community members joining us in demanding their right to express their view on whatever deal – or no deal – Theresa May comes back with.
“This summer thousands of workers and young people have been making their voices heard in rallies, marches and events across the country. It is clear that momentum is with the People’s Vote campaign and the support of another trade union affiliated to the Labour Party will send a message that more and more Labour Party members and supporters want a proper debate and vote on a People’s Vote at Labour’s conference in September.”
