The United Steelworkers and Dortmund, Germany-based The Rosler Group are scheduled to meet on Aug. 24 to continue talks concerning Rosler's planned acquisition of Continental Tire North America Inc.'s (CTNA) OTR tire plant in Bryan, Ohio.

Talks between the union and Rosler fell apart in June. Rosler must negotiate a new contract with the union before it can buy the Bryan facility.

In related news, CTNA has extended its letter of intent to sell the plant to Rosler back to Aug. 31.
