A Movement To Reform Fashion
2-4-21 – Nike has failed to Keep Workers Safe. The company has not signed onto the Severance Guarantee Fund and has not committed to contribute 1% of its net revenue to garment worker direct relief. Of the $25 million that the Nike Foundation and Nike have committed to COVID-19 response efforts, only $1 million has gone to workers in “vulnerable communities,” including the nations where it sources its products. It’s not clear if any of this aid went to garment workers themelves. Like many other major American brands, Nike is a signatory to the UAID MOU, which promises to “pursue much-needed relief” for female garment workers impacted by the pandemic in Asia. To date, the USAID MOU has released no money and is a woefully inadequate response to this crisis.
12-20-20 – Nike records a staggering $1.25 billion profit in Q3 of 2020, joining the ranks of brands earning record pandemic profits. As part of our #ShareYourProfits campaign, PayUp Fashion demands that Nike join the Severance Guarantee Fund and contribute 1% of net revenue towards garment worker direct relief.
5-14-20 – Nike joins the list of brands and retailers committing to #PayUp in full for all orders placed prior to the pandemic, ensuring that suppliers and garment workers receive the money owed for work they’ve done for the corporate giant.
