Cooper comments on Albany union vote

June 10, 2005

Cooper Tire & Rubber Co. officials say they "are pleased with the results of the vote against union representation" that took place at its Albany, Ga., plant earlier this week.

"Cooper doesn't believe a union is in the best interests of our company, our plant, our employees, or the Albany community," officials commented in an official statement.

"Cooper has a great relationship with Albany employees and we expect that to grow stronger as we go forward making the best tires we can for our customers."

More than 700 employees voted to keep the plant non-union.
