“Nothing is Impossible. Pay the Kizone workers the US$1.8 million severance they are owed. If you can talk the talk, you gotta walk the walk adidas!”
It's all about numbers, so leave your comments, share with your friends and let the global action begin!
For over a year and a half, 2,800 ex-Kizone workers have been fighting for the severance pay they are owed since their boss suddenly closed the factory and fled the country. Over the last six months Kizone workers have been joined by thousands of supporters from across the world who have taken action demanding that adidas pay up. Despite this adidas tell us they will not pay and ex-Kizone workers are getting more and more into debt.
The campaign pressure is working: although adidas continue to deny responsibility they have tried to deflect criticism by coming up with various schemes to get themselves off the hook, including handing out food vouchers and organising a summit last month to agree what can be done in future factory closures. This is not enough – PT Kizone workers simply want what they are owed and we won't stop until they get it.
adidas is feeling the heat, but we need more. We want to show adidas they can't ignore us. Together we will continue breathing down adidas' neck until the garment workers at the PT Kizone factory are paid the US$1.8 million in legally-mandated severance they are owed.
This might be the final push the workers need to win what adidas owes them.
Thank you for your support,
The Kizone workers
