Members of the United Steelworkers (USW) union locals 2L, 12L, 307L, 831L and 959L have ratified a new collective bargaining agreement with Goodyear Tyre and Rubber on behalf of about 7,200 workers, the USW said.

The agreement applies to tyre plants in Akron, Ohio; Danville, Virginia; Fayetteville, North Carolina; Gadsden, Alabama; and Topeka, Kansas. It passed by a three-to-one margin, according to the United Steelworkers. USW International vice president Tom Conway, who chairs the union’s Goodyear negotiations, credited workers’ solidarity throughout the bargaining process for a contract that achieved the goals the membership identified as important.

The five-year contract includes significant wage improvements, retains cost of living adjustments , closes gaps between labor grade tiers and extends plant protection guarantees that none of the plants will close during the term of the agreement. The contract also includes a commitment from Goodyear to invest in the future of the facilities to enhance the long-term job security of the union workforce; maintains quality, affordable healthcare; and resolves a variety of local issues. The new agreement expires in July 2022.
