Honduran union & USAS win historic victory with Russell Athletic case

United Students Against Sweatshops wants to share news of a major victory with all of you who have supported our efforts along the way.

As many of you know, USAS launched a campaign last year after Russell Athletic shuttered its Jerzees De Honduras facility in retaliation to workers' union organizing efforts. Since then, USAS members successfully pressured over 100 universities to stop doing business with Russell, making this the largest collegiate boycott of a single company that we're aware of in history.
