Brexit talks are about to get underway in Brussels and the EU is going to have to act to protect the rights of workers in the EU.EU leaders are set to hold a crucial summit on Friday to hammer out the details of the final divorce deal, but there’s no guarantee that the two sides will reach a deal on the issues of workers’ rights and the future of their trade agreements.
Key points:Workers in the European Union are facing a lot of uncertaintyAfter Brexit, workers in Britain will face new hurdles and uncertaintyEU leaders will be in Brussels for a crucial meeting on FridayAfter Brexit talks begin, Britain will have to deal with the fallout of the Brexit dealWorkers are currently entitled to the same rights as in the United Kingdom under the EU’s free movement systemThe EU has promised to offer workers the same benefits and protection as the UK and this has led to a lot more people in the country wanting to join the union.
But, as Brexit talks progress, it will be much harder for them to find a solution.EU chief negotiator Michel Barnier said the next meeting of EU leaders would take place on Friday, but he stressed that it was unlikely to be the final destination.
He said there was no guarantee of a deal by the time the summit concludes, but that the next stage would be for the EU to provide more clarity.
“We will discuss the future direction of negotiations.
There is no certainty of a resolution,” he told reporters on Friday.”
I cannot say that we will reach an agreement but I can say that there is a possibility of some progress.”
He added that he was “optimistic” that the EU will agree a “sufficient progress” (SP) agreement for the Brexit talks.
The agreement will need to be ratified by all 27 member states.
However, the negotiations are also likely to face a number of obstacles.
There are also doubts about whether Britain can leave the European Economic Area (EEA) or the customs union, which has been part of the EU since the 1990s.
The UK is also likely be confronted with new trade barriers from the United States.
European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker has said that he wants to reach an acceptable agreement by the end of June.EU diplomats have warned that Brexit talks will take longer than anticipated, and said that they had already made the final offer on workers’ benefits.
“It’s important to stress that negotiations are not finished and we will be back on the agenda for the next week,” Barnier told reporters.
Mr Barnier also said that the Commission was “not going to accept that our offer has not been accepted”.
He added: “It’s our intention to continue negotiating, but we will not accept a compromise, because that is not the European way.”
It is up to the other 27 member States, and we are ready to negotiate.”‘
I want to be here in Brussels’For many workers, the decision to leave the EU has been the hardest one of their lives.
After years of living and working in the capital, it’s difficult to find work and access the EU health care system, and the number of EU citizens who leave the UK to come to work in the US has risen by around one million.
Many UK workers who had been living and growing in London now live and work in Manchester.
Some of those workers, such as former civil servants and engineers, have been left with no choice but to leave.
Mr Barny told reporters that there was still a “strong appetite” for workers in Europe to return to the UK.”
There is a strong appetite for us to continue to have talks with the British people,” he said.”
For many of them, this is their last chance to live their dreams.
They want to stay in Europe and be able to have their family and their children and their friends here in the U.K. That is the reality, not a fantasy.”
Mr Juncker said there would be no “soft” exit, but instead a “hard Brexit”.”
I want the UK government to work on a hard Brexit,” he added.”
The UK has made a lot progress.
We will be prepared to move forward and negotiate on the details.
I am sure that there will be some hard decisions that we need to take.
We are not ready to walk away.”‘
The people of the UK’Mr Junck’s announcement comes as a report by the Royal Institution for the Protection of Unions (RSPU) suggested that some British employers are looking for a “soft Brexit”.
In its latest report, the organisation says that some employers are seeking to “change the rules of the game” in order to avoid losing out on UK workers.
The report says that a soft Brexit, which would see the UK leave the EEA and the customs unions, would mean “an end to a number” of workers.”
These workers are already being squeezed by the loss of
