Sports Direct - National Day of Action

25 August 2016 - 12:45pm
Event

EVENT DATE: Saturday 3 September 2016

LOCATION:  UK Wide

Sports Direct is mining new depths of worker exploitation. When precarious contracts mean workers can be fired at will, abuse is difficult to challenge. Other companies are following suit in the quest to maximise profits at the expense of human dignity and workplace rights. It’s also no coincidence that the workers facing these conditions are largely migrant and women workers. War on Want is supporting Unite the Union’s Sports Direct Shame campaign to give the protection of a union to all workers and end the abuse of precarious contracts. 

War on Want has called a national day of action on Saturday 3 September 2016

People all around th UK will be taking a stand against this exploitation at local Sports Direct shops
