In her latest blog post for Unions 21, FDA Assistant General Secretary Naomi Cooke examines both the challenges and the opportunities that Brexit presents for the civil service.
She says: “Brexit will present challenges and opportunities for many industries and sections of the workforce. How employers respond will be key. The Government is in the spotlight here with an excellent opportunity to lead by example, not just in how it treats the EU nationals in the civil service workforce but, more broadly, how it reshapes its new agenda and enables a motivated civil service to deliver. Unions will be central to this process in the civil service, just as they must be in industries throughout the economy.”
