US university dumps adidas: first-ever contract loss over sweatshop abuse
by geertjan published 25-09-2012 last modified 24-04-2013 09:50 — filed under: , ,
US Cornell University announced that they will severe their contract with adidas from the beginning of October 2012, becoming the first U.S. university in history to terminate an agreement with the German company over labour rights. Cornell’s decision comes nearly a year and a half after PT Kizone, an adidas supplier factory in Indonesia, shut down unexpectedly in 2011. The closure left nearly 3,000 workers without $1.8 million in legally-owed severance. Adidas still refuses to pay up.
