On December 2, 2014, a worker at the factory New Holland Apparel de Nicaragua, in Nicaragua, filed a Third Party Complaint with the FLA alleging that she had been dismissed from her job because of her union affiliation; moreover, the worker alleged that she was harassed by management, which had led to psychological trauma and the need for medical treatment.  

FLA affiliates Under Armour and Adidas, which have had sourcing relationships with the factory, engaged well-respected academic and labor lawyer Fanor Avendaño to mediate the differences between the worker and the factory and to seek a negotiated solution. 

The final summary report for this complaint appears below in both English and Spanish.
