Contract talks between Bridgestone Firestone North American Tire LLC and the United Steelworkers are in recess, according to a Bridgestone/Firestone spokesman.

The last contract between the company and the union expired July 23.

It covered BFNT tire production plants in Akron, Ohio; Des Moines, Iowa; LaVergne, Tenn.; and Oklahoma City, Okla., in addition to a tube plant in Russellville, Ark., and an air spring factory in Bloomington, Ill.

Negotiators from the Steelworkers and Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. were slated to return to the bargaining table today, Nov. 14.
