Exciting news! After refusing to pay legally-mandated severance pay to over 1,800 Honduran garment workers who produced university apparel in two factories which closed over a year ago, Nike has agreed to settle and pay some $2 million dollars to the displaced workers. The settlement includes severance pay, a year of health care coverage, and job retraining. This victory comes after University of Wisconsin-Madison and Cornell University cut their contracts with Nike over its workers’ rights violations in this case. Brown also ended its contract with Nike as of July 1, due to Nike’s inability to comply with the university’s Licensee Code of Conduct. Student Labor Alliance is very excited about this landmark victory, and the role that Brown played in it.
