A Movement To Reform Fashion
5-14-20 – Under Armour joins rivals Nike and Adidas and commits to #PayUp for all orders placed prior to the pandemic in ful and on time.
KEEP WORKERS SAFE
2-4-21 – Under Armour has failed to Keep Workers Safe. The brand has not signed onto the Severance Guarantee Fund and has not contributed 1% of its net revenue to direct relief. Under Armour is a signatory to the ILO Call to Action, which promised eleven months ago to “protect garment workers’ income.” Even though Michael Levine, Under Armour’s Chief Sustainability Officer is on the Call to Action Working Group, the project has to date released a staggeringly insufficient sum of money to garment workers (less than $200 million to just four countries) and is in no way a satisfactory response to this crisis.
12-20-21 – Under Armour turns a $39 million profit during Q3 of 2020, joining the ranks of brands returning to earnings during the pandemic. PayUp Fashion demands that Under Armour #ShareYourProfits by committing to the Severance Guarantee Fund for laid-off workers and contributing 1% of net revenue to direct relief for garment workers.
8-16-21 – Under Armour publicly discloses all of its Tier 1 suppliers – its cut and sew factories – per its commitment to the Transparency Pledge. Under Armour thus receives a yellow slash for progress towards Go Transparent. To receive a “YES” for Action 3 on the PayUp Fashion Tracker, it must a) additionally disclose its tier 2 (fabric mills), tier 3 (yarn and fiber mills) and tier 4 (raw materials) suppliers; b) disclose the wages of the lowest-earning workers at each factory and c) share audit and remediation reports publicly, and make these findings available to the garment workers in the audited factories.
