Goodyear Workers Walk Off The Job

Mon., April 21, 1997

Striking workers set up picket lines at Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. plants in seven states Sunday after more than 12,500 employees walked off the job.

Contract talks between Goodyear, North America’s largest tire maker, and the United Steelworkers union broke down late Saturday just before the contract expired at midnight, said union spokesman Curt Brown.

Negotiations on a new three-year contract began March 6.

Workers began picketing shortly after midnight at plants in the Midwest and South.
