In the wake of the Brexit vote last month, many EU migrant workers are worried about their status in the UK. UNISON is currently seeking advice from the Joint Council for the Welfare of Immigrants (JCWI) on what steps EU migrant workers can take to protect themselves.

It is illegal to give immigration advice unless you are qualified to do so. UNISON will be making the legal advice available to activists and EU migrant members as soon as it is available. 

For any problems in the meantime, members can access the migration advice helpline, by phoning UNISONdirect (0800 0 857 857) and asking for a call back from a migration lawyer.

No laws have changed yet, which means the status of EU migrants currently remains the same. UNISON is campaigning to protect the rights of migrant workers.
