Nike faces allegations of worker abuse in Indonesia
8 September 2011
Global sports apparel corporation Nike is facing fresh allegations of abuse and mistreatment of workers by its contract manufacturers in Asia. The latest claims refute the longstanding assertions by Nike and other high-end garment and footwear manufacturers that they are improving conditions in their outsourced sweat-shop operations.
According to an Associated Press (AP) report published in the Singapore Straits Times in July, workers making Nike’s Converse brand sneakers in Indonesia said supervisors regularly physically assaulted and verbally abused them. Nike admits that abuses occurred but insists there was little it could do to stop it.
Workers at Nike’s PT Nikomas plant in Indonesia celebrated today after a subcontractor for the US footwear giant agreed to pay staff $1 million (£650,000) in compensation for unpaid overtime.
