Write to Olympic sportswear brands to demand they respect workers' rights

New research, published last week by the Playfair 2012 coalition, exposed the exploitation of workers making clothes for the London 2012 Olympic Games. The report shows that the promise of a fair and sustainable London 2012 is still far from being realised.

The report, Fair Games, exposed factories supplying brands including Adidas, Next, Nike and Speedo:

  • Paying workers poverty wages, as little as £1.78 a day
  • Not providing job security by leaving workers on short term contracts which denies them legal benefits
  • Requiring workers to do forced overtime
  • Preventing workers from unionising
