Sports Direct – THE FIGHT FOR JUSTICE FOR WORKERS – CONTINUES!

W o W2.jpg

Sports Direct has hit the headlines this week. Thousands of its warehouse workers are set to receive back pay after the retailer admitted breaking the law by not paying the national minimum wage.

But it’s not just about pay. This is a place where new starters are referred to as “fresh meat”, subject to daily body searches and penalised for spending too long in the toilet.

From Shenzhen to Shirebrook, workers must be respected.

Take action at Sports Direct shops on your high street: join us on 3 September to stop this abuse.

Sports Direct is mining new depths of worker exploitation. 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, some of the most vulnerable. 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.

Take action at Sports Direct shops on your high street: Join us on 3 September to stop this abuse.

If we come together we can stop this race to the bottom, and win protection at work for everyone.
