Adidas: Not Ok Anywhere

As Adidas took centre stage as the official sportswear partner of London 2012, the harsh reality of life for the workers who make their clothes was exposed.

Workers making Adidas clothes around the world are paid poverty wages, have little or no job security and face harassment or dismissal if they try and organise trade unions to defend their rights.

This is exploitation. It’s not ok for Adidas to treat workers like this in the UK, and it shouldn’t be ok anywhere else.

Exploitation. It’s not ok here. It’s not ok anywhere.

Adidas is not alone in exploitating workers around the world. Millions of workers across poorer countries face appalling working conditions making clothes for the UK high street.

Join our campaign to end the exploitation of workers around the world.
