TOURING NIKE'S FACTORIES
(2007-01-11)
(wgvu) - NIKE IS TAKING REPRESENTATIVES FROM
SEVERAL COLLEGES, INCLUDING MICHIGAN STATE UNIVERSITY, ON A TOUR OF
SOME OF ITS ASIAN FACTORIES.
THE INVITE COMES AMID ALLEGATIONS THAT NIKE IS OPERATING
SWEATSHOPS OVERSEAS.
NIKE SAYS THE GUESTS ARE ALLOWED TO ASK ANY QUESTION THEY WANT
DURING THE TRIP, BECAUSE THE COMPANY WANTS TO BE AS TRANSPARENT AS
POSSIBLE.
THE SCHOOLS INCLUDE GEORGETOWN, CALIFORNIA AND OTHERS WITH NIKE
SPONSORSHIP AGREEMENTS.
IT'S THE FOURTH SUCH TRIP IN FIVE YEARS. THE REPRESENTATIVES
WILL VISIT FACTORIES IN VIETNAM AND CHINA.
THE SNEAKER GIANT IS THE FIRST MAJOR APPAREL MANUFACTURER TO
VOLUNTARILY DISCLOSE THE NAMES AND LOCATIONS OF ITS ENTIRE SUPPLY
CHAIN.
