Also, we will urge Nike to keep its promise to return production to Mexmode (formerly Kuk Dong,) a Mexican supplier that now has an independent union with a contract. Nike had left Mexmode, a move that appeared to activists to be running away from a funion factory. In response to hundreds of letters, Nike announced on November 30 that it would be returning production to Mexmode in 2002.
