Second National Day of Action against Sports Direct

Sports Direct Have a HeartUnite will demonstrate outside Sports Direct high street stores as part of a second national day of action on 13 February against Sports Direct’s shameful work practices. 

On this day of action we demand that Sports Direct:

1.    Commits to becoming a living wage employer
2.    Tackles its Victorian work practices
3.    Transfers agency staff onto fixed hour permanent contracts.

Support Sports Direct workers – join us on the day 

Please join us at a Sports Direct shop near you. If you can’t join us in person, then follow us on Twitter @unitetheunion #SportsDirectShame or please show your support by signing our petition – Sports Direct: Stop your shameful work practices
