That's why MPs have tabled amendments to protect our rights at work. If constituents put pressure on members of Parliament, they'll be more likely to support the amendments.

Can you please email your MP and ask them to stand up for the rights of ordinary working people after Brexit?

Email your MP now

We've provided a sample letter, but if you can delete it and write your own it will have much more impact, even if it's only short.

The important information to tell your MP is that as one of their constituents you want them to guarantee our rights after Brexit by supporting amendments 2, 9 & NS1, and NC1 in the EU Withdrawal Bill debate.

Amendment 9 and NS1 would prevent Ministers from using powers in the Bill to cut vital work rights like paid holiday, time off for working parents or equal treatment for part time and agency workers.

NC1 would require that attempts to change employment law via regulations can only be used to enhance rights and be subject to extra scrutiny

Amendment 2 would prevent government from using powers in the bill to repeal or revoke the Equality Act.
