De-linking frontier workers' mobility from everyone else worsens negotiating position, say GSD

The GSD says the news of a process facilitating a special regime of freedom of movement across the frontier beyond 1 January 2021 for frontier workers , the majority of which are Spanish, just confirms what it's been saying since the EU Withdrawal Agreement and MOUs were signed in late 2018.

Opposition Leader, Keith Azopardi claims allowing the de-linking of mobility rights for frontier workers from those of the rest of the population, has worsened the ability to negotiate arrangements on mobility now.

Speaking to our reporter Kevin Ruiz, Mr Azopardi said the Spanish Government has described it as having dealt with one of the main issues of concern in the Campo de Gibraltar.
