Case Summary

The WRC identified multiple violations of Cambodian law and university labor standards at Trax Apparel, a collegiate supplier to adidas, including the illegal firing of eight workers in retaliation for forming a union to seek to better working conditions. After extensive engagement with adidas, management reinstated four of the eight leaders, however, with only partial back pay and has subjected them to discriminatory treatment since their return. adidas has declined to require Trax Apparel to take further corrective action. The WRC continues to urge adidas to fulfill its obligations to its university licensors and require its supplier to remedy all violations of university labor standards.
