Qatar: BWI & Belgian Football Association launch platform to promote migrant workers' rights
"Belgium: Unions and football association agree to a platform to monitor Qatar’s migrant workers", 7 June 2021
BWI’s Belgian trade union affiliates FGTB and CSC BiE on 7 June met with the Royal Belgian Football Association (URBSFA) in Brussels to discuss ways on how the latter can help in promoting migrant workers’ rights and improving their working and living conditions, especially those working in Qatar.
The trade unions sat down with URBSFA CEO Peter Bossaert and discussed the latest updates on Qatar’s migrant workers, 17 months before the 2022 World Cup is held in the country. They called on the football association to take a pro-active role in drawing international public attention to the situation of migrant workers and promoting migrant workers’ rights and welfare.
