Campaign Profile: No Sweat

No Sweat is an activist,campaigning organisation, fighting sweatshop bosses, in solidarity with workers, worldwide. Sweatshop labour is modern global capitalism stripped bare. From the small, back-street sweat-shop to some of the biggest corporations in the world - child labour, forced overtime, poverty wages, unsafe conditions, harassment of women workers and intimidation of trade unionists are commonplace.

No Sweat stands for workers' solidarity. We are for:

  • A living wage
  • Safe working conditions
  • Independent trade unions
  • All workers, in every country, deserve and need these rights. In order to enforce these rights, they need to be free to organise.

We aim to:

  • Make solidarity with sweatshop workers and their organisations
  • Help unionise sweatshops in Britain
  • Publicise, expose and help stamp out sweatshop employment.

We organise direct action to target the big brand abusers; bring inspiring activists from around the world over to the UK to talk to people and make direct links of solidarity; put on benefits to raise money to help workers' organisations in the sweatshops to take on their bosses; and take action here in the UK.
No Sweat is an open, broad-based campaign. We look to the anti-capitalist protest movements and to the international workers' movement. We seek to build common, united, campaigning action against exploitation.
