The Executive Committee of the Musicians’ Union (MU) has voted to back this campaign at its September meeting.

The Union is encouraging its members and their colleagues in the music industry to sign up to the campaign on the People’s Vote website.

The campaign aims to ensure that the people who will be affected by the Government's Brexit negotiations for generations have a say on the final Brexit deal.

The MU’s position on Brexit

Horace Trubridge, MU General Secretary, said:

“‘The MU has been anti-Brexit since the referendum was announced as we are deeply concerned about how our members’ livelihoods will be affected.

“We have been working hard to address concerns such as the impact of freedom of movement ending and the likely introduction of a VISA system.

“We are supporting the People’s Vote campaign now, because we think our members and other workers should have their say on the final Brexit deal.

“Given this started with consulting the population when nobody really understood the likely fall out, it seems perfectly reasonable to expect people to get a say on the terms of it.”
