Prospect is proud to represent more than 141,000 professionals across more than 300 employers during one of the most divisive and challenging periods in UK politics.

Our union is politically independent but we are concerned that the UK’s decision to leave the European Union will have significant and challenging implications for UK workers.

During it all, we are committed to protecting individual rights at work and to providing a coherent and influential voice on the future of members' industries and sectors.

So far we have lobbied ministers, raised issues with the Trades Union Congress and met many branches to discuss the issues affecting their area. This is only the beginning.

We look forward to sharing our work with members through various blogs, news and recruitment resources.

If you would like to get involved in Prospect's work on Brexit or share your story with us, contact or

If you would like to lobby your local MP and ask them to support a Brexit that works for working people, and the UK economy, please use our simple email campaign tool.

Prospect’s guarantee: we have your concerns at heart

This is one of the most divisive and challenging periods ever seen in UK politics. Whichever way you personally chose to vote (if you voted) there is probably someone you know who voted the opposite way. The challenge for the United Kingdom now will be to pull together and create...
