The University of Michigan has ended its licensing agreement with Russel Corp. over what it said is the company's denials of workers' rights in Honduras, according to a report by the Associated Press.

Russell closed the plant in Cholom, Honduras in 2007 after 750 of 1800 workers formed a union, the report says.

The announcement follows on the heels of several institutions that have cut ties with the apparel-maker, including Georgetown, Wisconsin, Miami, Rutgers, Columbia, Purdue and Cornell.

According to the Associated Press, University of Michigan spokeswoman Kelly Cunningham said Monday a panel at the school found that Russell broke its own rules and violated workers' freedom of association.
