TSSA Welcome Scottish Labour decision to campaign for Peoples Vote and to campaign for Remain

8 June 2019

Richard Leonard used his speech at TSSA union's annual conference today to confirm Scottish Labour's commitment to a confirmatory vote over Brexit, and to campaign for Remain.

The announcement met with enthusiastic applause from delegates at TSSA’s conference in Glasgow.

Richard Leonard said, “There must be a confirmatory vote on any deal agreed in Parliament and there must be an option of a remain vote on the ballot paper… The Scottish Labour party will campaign hard for a Remain decision ahead of any confirmatory vote.”

TSSA General Secretary Manuel Cortes said “I am delighted to see Scottish Labour recognise that any Brexit will be a bad outcome for workers not only in Scotland but around the UK. It is right that Scottish Labour is going to stand up against that very real threat to jobs and communities.”
