No Sweat: Who We Are

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 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 low-paid, insecure workers in Britain

Publicise, expose and help stamp out sweatshop employment.

No Sweat is a grassroots campaign that builds solidarity among workers’ worldwide. We look to global social justice movements and to the international workers' movement to build common, united, campaigning action against workplace exploitation and the sweatshop bosses.

Our brand of No Sweat ethical t-shirts are made in workers’ co-ops, where workers earn a living wage and have democratic control over their work, the profits raised from the t-shirt are put back into the campaign, and help fund independent trade unions, to fight for the rights of workers facing exploitation.


No Sweat is a grassroots campaign group. We do not receive funding from the government or any charitable trusts, we rely on our own fundraising events, income from our T-shirt sales, and the generosity of donations from people like you.

By donating to No Sweat you can help continue to campaign against sweatshop exploitation and fund independent trade unions and workers’ groups around the world.
