Reebok Delivering Ultimatum to Asian Suppliers: The Stoughton, Mass.-based athletic wear company said it is calling meetings with manufacturers to tell them they must abide by the human rights policies of Reebok International Ltd. or face losing contracts. The action followed news earlier this month that 800 workers making Reebok shoes in southern China were illegally housed in an unsafe makeshift dormitory.
