London, One of Britain’s biggest trade unions is

backing calls for a new public vote on leaving the European Union,

saying voters were misled during the 2016 referendum campaign.

The GMB union, which has more than 600,000 members, says

the promises that were made during the referendum campaign are

simply not the reality we are facing.

In a statement released today, GMB General-Secretary Tim

Roache says the union’s members in manufacturing, retail and other

sectors face uncertainty because the British government has yet to

negotiate a deal with the EU.

The union says Britons voted to leave the EU, but they did not

vote for economic chaos or to put jobs and hard-won rights on the

line, and voters should be able to accept or reject the final Brexit deal,

the Associated Press (AP) news reported.
