Business And Labor Unions Plead Together With British Government Over Brexit Deal
According to CNN, British business and labor unions have set aside their differences to make a joint appeal to Prime Minister Theresa May to change course on Brexit or risk a massive economic shock.
Top officials at the Confederation of British Industry and the Trades Union Congress said Thursday that Britain faces a "national emergency" if politicians allow the country to crash out of the European Union without a transitional deal to protect trade.
UK labor unions and business lobbies rarely speak with one voice, but they have been united by fears that a disorderly Brexit would wreak havoc on the economy.
That could happen in just eight days.
