Goodyear, USW Reach Tentative Agreement
Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. says it has reached a tentative agreement with the United Steelworkers on a new, four-year master contract covering four plants in the United States.
Two of the plants - Danville, Va., and Topeka, Kan. - manufacture commercial truck tires.
The Topeka plant also builds OTR tires.
Other facilities covered include Goodyear's race tire plant in Akron, Ohio, and a consumer tire plant in Fayetteville, N.C.
The agreement "is subject to a ratification vote by USW members," say Goodyear officials.
