AKRON, Ohio — Goodyear reached a tentative agreement with its unions just in time for Christmas. The tentative deal with the United Steelworkers union was reached Dec. 22.
Goodyear says the new deal will allow the company to reduce costs and improve competitiveness in its North American operations.
Our goal was always to reach a fair agreement that improves our ability to compete and win with customers, said Robert J. Keegan, chairman and CEO of Goodyear. This agreement would accomplish that goal.
The agreement covers workers at 12 tire and engineered products plants in the US. The company says it improves job security for employees and allows for capital investments in its existing tire plants.
