Goodyear, United Steelworkers reach tentative labor agreement

Goodyear Tire and the United Steelworkers (USW) have reached tentative agreement on a new five-year master labor contract covering nearly 7,000 workers at five plants in the United States.

“We believe we have crafted a new labor agreement that positions both Goodyear and the United Steelworkers for success in the future,” said Jim Allen, Goodyear’s vice president, Global Labor Relations.

The tentative agreement is subject to a ratification vote by USW members at the five plants covered by the contract: Akron, Ohio; Danville, Va.; Fayetteville, N.C.; Gadsden, Ala.; and Topeka, Kan. It is expected that the local unions will schedule ratification votes within the next few weeks.
