MPs and trade unionists decry Qatar exploitation

Monday 22nd September 2014

Labour MPs joined union activists at the weekend to “show Qatar the red card” over its appalling abuse of migrant workers.

Shadow international development secretary Jim Murphy, shadow minister for sport Clive Efford and backbencher Stephen Hepburn joined members of construction union Ucatt to demand that Qatar stop exploiting migrant workers or be barred from hosting the 2022 World Cup.

The three MPs were snapped in Manchester following a pre-Labour Party conference football match between MPs and journalists at the Ethiad Arena.

Qatar has been accused of exploiting migrant construction workers, with over 1,380 from India and Nepal dying under terrible working conditions.

“Pressure is growing on Qatar to end the exploitation and deaths of migrant workers,” said Ucatt general secretary Steve Murphy.

“Fifa must act and tell Qatar that unless this abuse is ended then it will be stripped of the right to hold the World Cup.”
