The E.P. Division was up for sale before the strike. We talked about it on this forum the first week in Oct. In Tyler we would be thrilled with a new owner even if it meant lower wages. The old guys would take their retirement and the young guys would have employement. You can lay the blame for the sellout at Goodyears feet. The union can only do so much. 1 DAY LONGER!!!

Steelworkers Union faces prosecution for illegal retaliatory strike fines and intimidation of Goodyear employees
Monday, June 18, 2007

Akron, OH (PRNewswire)-- After several employees at the local Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. facility filed a wave of federal charges, the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) has agreed to prosecute the United Steel Workers of America (USWA) union for hitting nonunion workers with illegal retaliatory strike fines and waging an ugly campaign of threats, recriminations, and hate mail. Between October 2006 and January 2007, USWA officials ordered employees to walk off the job at the Goodyear plant. However, in order to support their families, some workers resigned from formal union membership in November and exercised their right to return to work. Stefan Gleason, vice president of the National Right to Work Foundation, said "This case shows the contempt that union officials often have for employees who exercise independent judgment and who work to support their families during an unpopular strike." According to the NLRB Regional Director, the case will be heard before an Administrative Law Judge on August 21, 2007. The order for an official hearing comes after Goodyear saw a USWA union-ordered walkout of over 15,000 of its employees across its 16 plants in North America for several months. "Unfortunately, as long as Ohio workers labor without the protections of a Right to Work law -- which makes union affiliation and dues payment strictly voluntary -- abuses of this nature will surely continue throughout the Buckeye State," said Gleason.

I have tried to get Dave McCall and his staff members to explain to me what happened to my missing 401-K money, Mr. McCall and his staff members will not do this. I also did not get extended insurance like some of the union members did when the plant closed. Mr. McCall why are you and your staff members unfair to union members?
