The International Trade Union Confederation is troubled by the charter's failure to address the sweltering summer working conditions when temperatures can hit 50 degrees (120F). ''It promises health and safety but provides no credible enforcement,'' ITUC General Secretary Sharan Burrow said. ''It promises employment standards but gives migrant workers no rights to collectively bargain or join a trade union. It promises equality but does not provide a guarantee of a minimum wage.'' The ITUC is urging the Qatari government to abolish the ''kafala'' employment system, which stops workers from leaving the country without written permission from employers. FIFA executive committee member Theo Zwanziger, who is working with the ITUC to resolve concerns about Qatar, will face questioning on their progress at the European Parliament in Brussels on Thursday. Hassan Al Thawadi, secretary general of the World Cup organizing committee, insisted that the tournament will be a catalyst for change in Qatar. ''(It) will leave a legacy of enhanced, sustainable and meaningful progress in regards to worker welfare across the country,'' Al Thawadi said.
