CLEVELAND - Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. and 15,000 union workers in the United States and Canada tentatively agreed Friday to a new contract that would end a two-month strike over health care for retirees and Goodyear's plan to close a tire factory in Texas, the union said.

The third-largest tiremaker and the United Steelworkers union settled after both sides resumed talks in Pittsburgh this week. The strike began Oct. 5.

The union says the deal would require Goodyear to drop plans to close the plant in Tyler, Texas, immediately in return for an offer of a retirement buyout. The plant employs 1,100 workers.

For one, I'm sure glad they were able to come to an agreement on this issue. Hopefully people won't have the difficulty in finding tires this year for their rides. JMHO I wish all the workers a great Holiday Season.
