Nike employees stage protest as company reopens Alberto Salazar buildingND


The Guardian, Tuesday 10th December 2019

Hundreds of Nike employees staged a walkout in Beaverton, Oregon on Monday as the company reopened a building named after controversial athletics coach Alberto Salazar. Mr Salazar has been accused of humiliating and belittling female athletes, and last month admitted he had made “callous remarks” to athletes. “On occasion, I may have made comments that were callous or insensitive over the course of years of helping my athletes through hard training,” he told the Oregonian newspaper. “If any athlete was hurt by any comments that I have made, such an effect was entirely unintended, and I am sorry.” Despite the controversy surrounding Mr Salazar, Nike kept the coach’s name on the building during its renovation, and his image still features strongly around the facility. According to the Willamette Week, around 400 Nike employees marched through the Nike campus on Monday with signs reading “Just Do Better”, “Nike is a woman” and “We believe Mary”.
