Where we Stand

No Sweat Scotland : Who we are

No Sweat Scotland is an activist, campaigning organisation, fighting sweatshop bosses, in solidarity with workers, worldwide.

Sweatshop labour is modern, global capitalism stripped bare. From the small, backstreet sweatshop 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 Scotland 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 - the stronger the union, the safer the workplace!

We aim to:

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

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, campaiging action against exploitation and the sweatshop bosses.

Come and join us, help us, get active!
