Goodyear: 'Talks have been productive'

Negotiators from Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and the United Steelworkers of America (USWA) continue to hammer out differences at the bargaining table in Cincinnati, Ohio.

"Talks continued through the weekend," a Goodyear spokesman told mtdealer.com this morning.

"They've been productive, resulting in progress in many areas."

However, both parties are still at odds over other issues, which he did not specify.

Negotiations, which officially resumed early last week, appeared to hit a snag this past Wednesday when the union rejected a Goodyear offer.

However, the company rebounded with a counter offer on Saturday that Steelworkers are now examining.

Talks between Goodyear and the USWA broke off in late June when the organizations were unable to reach a tentative agreement.

Unionized workers at 14 Goodyear plants throughout North America are working under a day-to-day contract that can be canceled by either side with a 72-hour notice.
