File PDF document Sweet FA? Football Associations, workers' rights, and the World Cup
by Paul Roeland last modified 19-01-2016 11:50 — filed under: ,
The world's Football Associations makes millions from sponsorship and licensing arrangements, while their sponsors are expecting hundreds of millions of pounds in additional revenue from World Cup goods. Meanwhile, the people stitching the footballs, sewing the shirts and glueing the boots that will earn this money are working late into the night, six or seven days a week, for poverty wages. Those that attempt to form trade unions to try to improve their working conditions are persecuted and often lose their jobs. This report gives examples of these violations of workers rights. Written by the TUC and Labour Behind the Label, 2006.
