Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. workers who've been on strike
for almost three months are scheduled to go back to work Tuesday, Jan. 2,
following the approval of a new contract.
According to The Wall
Street Journal, the workers got the $1 billion health care fund for
retirees that they wanted.
The company gets to shut down what it says is an
unprofitable private-label tire plant in Tyler, TX - but agreed to wait one
year before closing it.
Goodyear says the new contract will allow it to save more
than $600 million during the next three years.
