Nearly 16,000 Goodyear employees are facing the holidays without paychecks. For two and a half months, the United Steelworkers (USW) members have been on strike in a brutal fight for job security and a fair deal on retiree health care. They are sacrificing and fighting the fight for good jobs for all of us—and they need our support.
When Goodyear was on the verge of bankruptcy three years ago, USW members and retirees accepted wage, health care and pension cuts and the closing of a plant to save the company. It worked—today Goodyear is highly profitable and able to lavish big bonuses on its executives. But the company wants still more sacrifices from workers.
Goodyear executives can buy their children all the gifts they want—while the striking USW members are struggling just to make it through.
