<p>Rutgers ends Adidas contract</p><p>

Miranda said. After the campus bookstores' stock of Adidas gear is sold, it will not be reordered.</p><p>Louis Vuitton Outlet Uk

"I applaud your commitment to workers in developing countries and your efforts to advocate on their behalf," Barchi wrote. "I agree with you that Adidas' refusal to acknowledge its responsibilities . is not consistent with the values of this university."</p><p>Louis Vuitton Watches Replica
Students claimed Adidas had refused to pay severance to the employees. Other businesses involved with the PT Kizone factory, including Nike and the Dallas Cowboys, have contributed to severance, but Adidas owes $1.8 million to more than 2,800 employees, according to the group.</p><p>Replica Louis Vuitton Bags
Rutgers is the fourth school to cut ties with Adidas as a result of the nationwide student campaign. Cornell University, Oberlin College, and the University of Washington also have terminated their contracts or plan to not renew them.</p><p>
In a statement Wednesday, Adidas said it was disappointed by Rutgers' decision, which it called unwarranted.</p><p>
"We are confident we are adhering to and in fact exceeding both the spirit and the letter of the codes of conduct our university partners require," the statement read. "We honored all terms of our contract, paying the factory owners every penny owed for the business we did."</p>
