To: Nike Employees Date: March 26, 2019 Priority: High Subject: Poor working conditions identified at Pou Chen Group factory in Sukabumi, Taiwan Through our established 100% third party working conditions overseas auditing firm, unacceptable working conditions were identified that are not in compliance with our internal policies and code of conduct. The Pou Chen Group factory was found to have extremely poor treatment of workers to include inhumane working conditions. Roughly 10,000 primarily female employees have been forced to work 10 or more-hour days making only 50 cents per hour which is prohibited by our company as it is less than the required living wage for that region. Additionally, workers were found to be subject to physical and verbal abuse enduring long punishments forcing workers to stand in the hot sun for failing to meet production standards. Per Our Corporate Code of Conduct We embrace accountability and leadership in advocating for the protection and respect of workers worldwide, because it is the right thing to do, and because it makes our business more resilient and more innovative. We want to be clear, we specifically and directly forbid these unfair and inhumane working conditions in any factories contracted to make Nike products, and we regularly monitor contract factories to remain vigilant. We do not make exceptions to this for new suppliers entering our source base nor for any other types of suppliers. We are committed to responsible employment practices for our own employees, and we expect the same of our suppliers. We also believe that the protection of life and health in the workplace is a fundamental right. Our immediate response is to enforce a probationary period to allow the company 30 days to become compliant with our corporate requirements. The terms of this period are as follows. Require an onsite Nike compliance manager to ensure improvement in working conditions as we are aware that suspending our active business with the Pou Chen Group will drastically impact the livelihood of the workers. Require monthly inspections of working conditions for one year to ensure compliance structure is in place to guarantee the safety of factory workers. The Pou Chen Group has 30 days to meet all regulatory compliance standards or Nike will terminate any further business relationship with this supplier. Respectfully, Mark Parker, CEO Nike Inc.
