3) Protects our rights

12 November 2015

The EU keeps us safe at work and protects our consumer rights.

The EU keeps people safe at work and protects your rights as a consumer. The EU protects paid leave, maternity rights and equal rights for agency workers. The EU has banned excessive credit and debit card surcharges and expensive customer phone lines.

Did you know? Before EU membership UK workers didn’t have rights to paid holiday.

 

Do you think the North East needs its own voice in the EU exit negotiations?
