“We believe we have crafted a new labour agreement that positions both Goodyear and the United Steelworkers for success in the future,” said Jim Allen, Goodyear’s vice president, Global Labor Relations.

The tentative agreement is subject to a ratification vote by USW members at the five plants covered by the contract: Akron, Ohio; Danville, Va.; Fayetteville, N.C.; Gadsden, Ala.; and Topeka, Kan. It is expected that the local unions will schedule ratification votes within the next few weeks.

Its two Innovation Centers in Akron, Ohio and Colmar-Berg, Luxembourg strive to develop state-of-the-art products and services that set the technology and performance standard for the industry.
