URGENT ACTION NEEEDED
adidas steals from it’s workers
Adidas is one of the world’s most profitable sports brands, yet workers making their clothes are systematically subjected to wage theft and union busting.
URGENT ACTION NEEEDED
STOP STEALING FROM FAMILIES
During the pandemic, over 1000 women who made clothes for Matalan were fired and then robbed of their legally owed bonuses and unpaid wages. Matalan workers’ families have been waiting for a year and a half to be paid what they are owed. Tell Matalan to stop stealing from families.
PAY YOUR WORKERS FIRST
The online fast fashion brand Missguided currently owes millions of pounds in unpaid bills to suppliers around the world. This is impacting on workers, many of whom are owed thousands of pounds in wages and payments. Tell Missguided to pay their workers before they payout to investors and shareholders.
NEXT, NIKE AND AMAZON:
IT’S TIME TO PAY YOUR WORKERS
