EUGENE - Nike is being pressured by a group of investors who are urging the sportswear giant to pay compensation to supply chain workers who lost their jobs in Cambodia and Thailand.

They want the company to pay $2.2 million to make up for unpaid wages and benefits allegedly owed to more than 4,000 workers who lost their jobs when their factories closed because of the COVID-19 pandemic three years ago.

The Violet Apparel factory - which was owned by the Ramatex textile and apparel conglomerate, a key Nike manufacturing partner - closed with the loss of 1,284 jobs in Phnom Penh. Another 3,360 workers lost their jobs when the Hong Seng Knitting factory in Thailand shuts its doors.
