The Swedish Olympic Committee has reached an agreement with the blue-collar Trades Union Congress in Sweden, the LO, ahead of a possible application to hold the 2022 Winter Olympics in Stockholm and Åre.

The deal means that the union organisation would investigate workers rights in all areas of the games, news agency TT reports. That could range from textile workers in Bangladesh making clothes for the games, to metro drivers in the Stockholm subway.

Sweden is currently looking into whether it should file an application to host the 2022 Olympics. A preliminary application has been handed in to the International Olympic Committee, the final decision about whether to apply has to be made by the middle of March.
