CBI and TUC join forces to urge Prime Minister to change Brexit approach

It is a measure of the crisis facing the UK that The CBI and TUC have joined forces ahead of today's European Summit. TUC General Secretary Frances O'Grady and CBI Director-General Carolyn Fairbairn have written a joint letter to the Prime Minister urging a change to her approach on Brexit. They have requested an urgent meeting to discuss their concerns. They warn of the "reckless damage" no deal would cause, demand a meaningful extension to Article 50, and urge Mrs May to seek a Plan B."The current deal or no deal' must not be the only choice. A Plan B must be found — one that protects workers, the economy and an open Irish border, commands a parliamentary majority, and is negotiable with the EU. A new approach is needed to secure this — whether through indicative votes or another mechanism for compromise."
