No World Cup without Workers’ Rights


Without unions, more people could die building Qatar’s World Cup stadiums than will play in the World Cup

1.2 million workers in Qatar are prohibited from joining a trade union, in violation of international rights to freedom of association and collective bargaining.

94% of working people in Qatar are migrant workers, with no rights at work.

Qatar controversially won the bid to host the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and plans to spend over $100 billion on stadiums and other World Cup projects.

Thousands of extra workers will be needed for these huge building projects over the next ten years.

We want people to know about the problems facing workers in Qatar, where more people will die building the World Cup infrastructure than will play in the World Cup.

Nearly 200 Nepali workers die each year in Qatar. Qatar refuses to publicly count the number of workers who die or are injured on the job.

Hundreds of other migrant workers from India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan and Bangladesh are also killed or injured in Qatar each year.

Local laws in Qatar stop migrant workers from forming a trade union, collectively bargaining for better wages, and healthy and safe work.

Don’t let your World Cup team play in a shamed stadium.
