Thursday, the Cornell Liscencing Oversight Committee voted that President Skorton should end its contract with Adidas. 

 

The Cornell Licensing Oversight Committee has voiced its opinion that President Skorton should end Cornell’s apparel contract with Adidas because of alleged labor abuse. Cornell holds contracts with Nike, Dallas Cowboys, and Adidas who produced Cornell apparel in an Indonesian factory. In the spring of 2011 the factory was shut down leaving 3,000 workers without severance pay, a total of at least 3.3 million dollars. Nike and Dallas Cowboys have payed their severance to the employees but according to the executive director of WRC, Adidas continues to withhold pay claiming it was not producing items in the factory at the time of closing. According to Cornell Licensing Oversight Committee members Adidas was producing merchandise. The committee voted Thursday that the next step of action is for President Skorton to terminate Cornell’s contract with Adidas.
