EMA to lose 25% of staff as hard Brex­it ap­proach­es

As UK Prime Min­is­ter There­sa May’s Brex­it deal is ex­pect­ed to be re­ject­ed Tues­day in a House of Com­mons vote, the EMA has said that af­ter close­ly mon­i­tor­ing staffers’ in­ten­tions to re­lo­cate to Am­s­ter­dam, it cur­rent­ly ex­pects a staff loss of about 25%.

The 25% fig­ure might seem like a lot of staffers to lose (about 225 of 900 lost), but that fig­ure is on the low end of pre­dic­tions from a sur­vey in Sep­tem­ber 2017 that found EMA ex­pect­ed to lose at least 19% of its staffers no mat­ter which city was se­lect­ed.
