Ex – Russell Honduras factory workers to tour USA for second time

Honduran Factory Workers Will Tour West Coast Schools April 13-28, Seeking Russell Contract Cuts

United Students Against Sweatshops is thrilled to announce the second tour in the U.S. by workers of Russell’s Jerzees de Honduras factory. During April 13-28, two workers — representing the 1800 workers that Russell left jobless simply for forming a union — will travel to the West Coast to call on universities to join the growing number of schools (over two dozen) severing ties with Russell Athletic. Campuses include:

  • University of Arizona
  • University of San Diego
  • UC Irvine
  • University of Southern California
  • UCLA

The best way to keep tabs on United Students Against Sweatshops campaign to re-open the Jerzees de Honduras factory that Russell closed because the workers were union (see: WRC report on Russell\’s worker\’s rights violations)

is to surf over to the Rein in Russell blog
