During the amicable conversation, the representatives broached the topics of the alleged poor working conditions in a Mexican factory, the University's membership with independent monitoring groups and the possibility of adding more stringent standards to UNC's labor code of conduct.
SEJ representatives introduced their concerns with a detailed agenda. It included proposals for Nike to provide a representative at the Kukdong factory, eliminate UNC's membership with the Fair Labor Association and add teeth to the labor code.
But the Mexican factory was the main topic of discussion.
The Kukdong factory in Puebla, Mexico is responsible for 85 percent of all Nike products, including UNC sports apparel and Reebok manufacturers.
Allegations were made that labor code violations existed at the factory, and more than 850 workers went on strike last month after five were reportedly fired for being leaders of an independent labor union.
As a result, SEJ demanded a change in UNC's contract with Nike to ensure the civil rights of workers in Mexico. "The timing of this issue was so extreme that we needed to talk to (Moeser) ourselves," said SEJ representative Kea Parker.
"Ultimately, the University's role in universal affairs is up to the chancellor."
SEJ representatives said they want Nike to provide a representative in Kukdong to ensure a free, safe and secret ballot election about the union.
Moeser said he would refer this request to the Licensing Labor Code Advisory Committee, which will hold open meetings Thursday and Monday.
