Chalk One Up For USAS
As the Collegian reported this afternoon, Penn State will officially terminate its contract with Russell Athletic in the wake of alleged unfair labor practices:
Damon Sims, vice president for Student Affairs, wrote in an e-mail to members of United Students Against Sweatshops (USAS) Friday morning that the university will terminate its licensing contract with the apparel manufacturer on March 31.
We’ve been following the Russell saga for a few weeks – from the initial response by Old Main, to United Students Against Sweatshops’ (USAS) declaration of a “Week of Action,” to yesterday’s sit-in – and it’s good to see a resolution regarding the issue.
USAS has been relentless in pressuring the University and has to be encouraged by Penn State’s decision to follow suit of eight other schools that have severed ties with the company.
