Letters to the Editor
UA responsible for continued labor abuses at New Era
This letter is in response to Mike Low's letter that appeared in the Monday Wildcat. Mr. Low claims that the university did not have legal recourse to cancel its contract with New Era, claiming that the administration did not receive a final report on the New Era cap company. What Mr. Low fails to mention is the reason for the lack of a final report: The New Era company refuses to allow the Worker Rights Consortium monitors into its factory to conduct another report. Management of the New Era company did allow investigators from the Fair Labor Association in, but, as is the case with reports from the FLA, that report is confidential. The edited FLA report is expected to be released this week.
