Company Response

Under Armour's response

... After engagement on this matter, we understand that Sports City’s retrenchment process has been supervised by the Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) and conducted in compliance with local regulations. Furthermore, we have communicated to Sports City our expectations and reminded it of its obligation to comply with all applicable legal requirements as an employer to its employees including in connection with employment terminations. We also have asked its senior management and operations teams to conduct a documented review of the FLA’s Retrenchment Guidelines, the Under Armour’s Supplier Code of Conduct, and the Fair Labor Association’s Workplace Code of Conduct...

[W]e have advised Sports City to take all necessary steps to safeguard its workers’ health and safety including those related to COVID-19 arising under local governmental directives and recommendations. Under Armour remains committed to protecting the workers who make our products... and will investigate, and act to address, issues brought to our attention by Business & Human Rights Resource Centre as well as other stakeholders.
