The Trades Union Congress invites proposals to conduct an impact study for the Playfair 2012 project and campaign

Playfair 2012 is a three-year project and campaign running from July 2009 to August 2012. The Playfair 2012 project is funded by the Department for International Development. Playfair 2012 aims to increase the awareness of UK workers and students of the interdependence of global sportswear supply chains and their power to affect change as consumers. In turn this will strengthen the efforts of ethical suppliers and workers in developing countries to alleviate their poverty.

The Playfair 2012 campaign aims to influence the policies and practises of major sportswear brands and the organisers of the London 2012 Olympics to ensure respect for International Labour Organisation Conventions and workers’ human rights, in their global supply chains.

Playfair 2012 is coordinated by the Trades Union Congress (TUC) and Labour Behind the Label. The TUC is commissioning this study to assess the impact of the Playfair 2012 project and campaign, and to capture learning from their implementation.
