Union delegates first to be fired

The Pinehurst factory, producing for Nike and Adidas, dismissed workers in August 2011 due to falling orders at the factory. Union delegates and union members were singled out for dismissal. After a very long process with many delays, a collective bargaining agreement was signed. However, until today it has only been partially implemented.

The Clean Clothes Campaign never received a response from Pinehurst Manufacturing. However, partners on the ground confirmed that the letters did have some effect. The owner was more willing to listen to the union when he understood that 'other eyes' were following the case as well.
