Contract talks between Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and union leaders resumed Monday, days after 12,000 workers went on strike over job security and pay issues.
Workers at eight of Goodyear’s 17 U.S. plants stayed on the job because they are covered by different contracts or aren’t unionized. The company said it is confident it can continue filling customer orders.
The 12,000 United Steelworkers of America members went on strike at midnight Saturday.
An average Goodyear production worker currently makes about $18 an hour.
