Puma ends Israel national soccer team sponsorship

Published

on

Sportswear giant Puma has announced its decision to terminate its sponsorship deal with Israel’s national soccer team.

The move comes amidst growing controversy surrounding Puma’s involvement with the team, which has faced criticism for its participation in matches held in Israeli settlements in the West Bank.

Puma had been the official kit sponsor for the Israel national football team since 2018, but pressure from activists and human rights organisations has been mounting. Critics argue that by sponsoring the team, Puma indirectly supports the Israeli government’s policies in the West Bank, which have been widely condemned as a violation of international law.

The decision to end the sponsorship deal was confirmed in a statement released by Puma’s spokesperson, who cited the company’s commitment to social responsibility and human rights as a driving factor. The move has been hailed as a victory by pro-Palestinian activists who have been calling for a boycott of Puma products.

The termination of the sponsorship raises questions about the role of corporate entities in international politics and human rights issues. It also highlights the growing influence of social justice movements on corporate decision-making.

FAA uncovers Boeing quality control issues

Published

The Federal Aviation Administration disclosed concerning findings from its 737 MAX production audit involving Boeing and supplier Spirit AeroSystems.

The audit uncovered multiple instances where the companies allegedly failed to adhere to manufacturing quality control standards.

The FAA highlighted significant “non-compliance issues” within Boeing’s manufacturing processes, including concerns related to parts handling, storage, and product control.

While a summary of the audit findings has been shared with the companies involved, the details have not been made public due to the ongoing nature of the investigation.

Following a mid-air emergency on January 5 involving a new Alaska Airlines 737 MAX 9, where a door plug was lost at 16,000 feet, the FAA initiated the audit.

This incident prompted a temporary grounding of the MAX 9 and raised questions about the aircraft’s safety protocols.

New acquisition

Boeing, in response to these revelations, has been in discussions to acquire Spirit AeroSystems.

However, the company has not provided immediate comment regarding the audit findings.

FAA Administrator Mike Whitaker emphasized the necessity for Boeing to implement comprehensive corrective measures to address what he termed as “systemic quality-control issues.”

Whitaker stated that Boeing must commit to substantial improvements, with clear milestones and expectations set forth by the FAA.
