Hundreds of workers in Qatar die constructing World Cup stadiums

Recent reports have once again highlighted the horrendous conditions that workers endure while building the infrastructure needed for the 2022 Football World Cup.

Only by constructingindependent trade unions will we be able to improve the conditions for workers in West Asia.
