Troon Manufacturing, Nicaragua

In August 2015, the FLA accepted a Third Party Complaint filed by the labor union Unidos en Victoria alleging freedom of association violations and improper dismissals at the factory Troon Manufacturing in Tipitapa, Nicaragua. The FLA accepted the case for review, informing adidas-Group, an FLA-affiliated company that sourced from the factory. FLA Participating Companies have up to 45 days to investigate the alleged noncompliance internally and inform the FLA of what they find. The adidas-Group conducted an assessment of the allegations using an external third party expert and its own staff. The findings of the assessment by adidas-Group and the remedial actions taken are elaborated in the reports below, including reinstatement and compensation of a worker improperly dismissed, and updates to the factory’s policies on termination.
