Wisconsin drops lawsuit against adidas

+

As expected, UW-Madison is no longer at issue with adidas over alleged labor issues at an Indonesian factor, PT Kizone. Back in April, adidas reached an agreement with the union representing the factory workers who complained of significant missed severance payments. The details of that agreement are confidential, though the response from local and national labor groups has generally been positive. UW-Madison also expressed its support of the agreement after it was announced. The university's Board of Regents initially alleged in the suit that adidas must pay the workers $2 million in back wages and benefits, as well as a honor a code of conduct provision. Dropping the lawsuit indicates those are no longer issues for the university, as interim chancellor David Ward went on record to state they've been accomplished.
