Sweden -Olympic bid with fair working conditions -January 10, 2014

An agreement between the Swedish Olympic Committee and national trade union centre LO, seeks to stop the violations of workers’ rights and worker-exploitation which continue to plague Olympics, football World Cup and other such events. The agreement is intended to apply to companies that produce facilities, equipment, clothes and supply services for the Winter Olympic Games in Stockholm in 2022 to ensure respect for the International Labour Organisation’s core labour standards which guarantee union organising and collective bargaining rights, non-discrimination and freedom from forced labour and child labour.
