Nike Suspension at BJ&B Factory
According to United Students Against Sweatshops, 150 workers at the BJ&B garment factory in the Dominican Republic were suspended from their jobs due to a lack of orders. USAS states that "Nike is slowly but surely cutting and running from this factory that had an historic victory in 2003 and was the first factory with an independent union in the caribbean basin. It is imperative that NIKE make a commitment to factories where workers have improved conditions and provide steady orders at fair prices to the factory. In a global race to the bottom- BJ&B is being cut out of the industry." Click on the URL to take action now.
