A union vote will likely be close on a new three-year contract with the Goodyear Tyre & Rubber Co. that could require unpleasant belt-tightening measures, a United Steelworkers union official told Associated Press (AP). "This is a tough contract at a tough time," Jim Wansley, president of United Steelworkers of America Local 746L at the Goodyear plant in Tyler, Texas, told AP from Cincinnati, where the tentative contract agreement was reached this week.
