Umunna – Prospect Union endorsement of People’s Vote a “huge moment”

Prospect, the trade union, has overwhelmingly backed a People’s Vote on the final terms of Brexit at the union’s national conference in Birmingham.

Commenting, Chuka Umunna MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“Getting the endorsement of one of the country’s biggest trade unions, Prospect - which represents 142,000 workers - is fantastic news and a huge moment for the People’s Vote campaign.

“More and more momentum is building behind the People’s Vote campaign, as increasing numbers of organisations, trade unions and other representative bodies add their support to calls for the British people to be given a say on the final Brexit deal.

“As the Brexit negotiations descend into increasing chaos, and as the Government continue to make a mess of the process, it simply won’t do for 650 MPs to determine the fate of 65 million - instead it should be the people of this country who decide whether the Brexit deal on offer is good enough.”
