Goodyear, USW reach tentative agreement
The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and the United Steelworkers (USW) reached a tentative agreement on a new master contract covering about 8,000 employees at six plants in the United States.
Jim Allen, Goodyear’s vice president global labor relations, and Tom Conway, USW vice president administration, said the tentative agreement must be approved by a majority of the six local unions representing a majority of the membership.
Ratification votes will be scheduled at the facilities in the near future. Goodyear says it will not discuss details of the proposed agreement until union members at the plants have an opportunity to review it.
