Goodyear Strikers Roll Over NASCAR Banquet

Council Executive Dir. Ed Ott, National Labor Committee
Executive Dir. Charlie Kernaghan, Rev. Dave Dyson
and Goodyear Strikers Members of United Steelworkers

Hundreds of supporters joined 20 Goodyear strikers to protest
Goodyear receiving an award at the NASCAR Banquet held at
the swank Waldorf Astoria Hotel. Goodyear, the sole supplier of
tires for NASCAR, forced 15,000 USW members in 16 North
American plants out on strike on October 5. Due to past sacrifices
by the workers, Goodyear profits reached a half a billion dollars in
2005. Proving that greed has no bounds, now Goodyear is insisting
on additional plant closings sending more jobs overseas. It is also
demanding concessions in this round of bargaining including health
care givebacks by retirees & dramatically lower starting salaries for
new hires.
