Tell your Tory MP: Don't cut a single workers' right when making the UK's new laws

Many vital rights at work in the UK are derived from EU law, guaranteeing things like paid leave entitlements, protections from being forced to work excessive hours, discrimination protections and rights for working mums-to-be.

Following the UK vote to leave the European Union, we now have to decide what happens to these rights. As the official Leave campaign's plan for managing Brexit said:

“Parliament will decide carefully which areas of existing EU law should a) be kept, b) be amended and c) be removed.”

Sign the petition demanding no cuts to workers' rights

Prominent leave campaigners have called for a halving of regulations derived from EU law, or flexibility in interpreting rights, claiming that British business would benefit from a reduction in "red tape".
