Spain Hopes to Maintain Status Quo for Gibraltar Workers after Brexit

MADRID – Spain’s Foreign Minister Alfonso Dastis said on Wednesday that the aim over the course of upcoming negotiations on the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union would be to maintain the status quo and protect the rights of cross-border workers regarding the future of Gibraltar – a British overseas territory on a southern tip of the Iberian peninsula.

Dastis met with mayors of seven small towns near Gibraltar to inform them about the progress in the Brexit negotiations during which time he said a future agreement would apply to citizens living in the area and cross-border workers in particular, which involves Spanish workers in Gibraltar and Gibraltarians working in Spain on the March 29, 2019 cutoff date.

“The goal is to maintain the status quo and if we can improve something to make life easier, we will,” said Dastis of talks between the UK and Spain on the specificities that apply to Gibraltar and the area.

He added that, “for all those people the right to work, equality of working conditions, recognition of social benefits, coordination of social security will be recognized.”

The minister acknowledged that no date for talks had been announced yet but that they would take place soon and should “define the future status of Gibraltar and our bilateral relations.”
