Everyone is anxious about the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak and what it means for ourselves and our families as well as our communities and livelihood. If and when information is available about the operation of the plant, it will be posted.
We wanted to let everyone know that a rumor about someone’s spouse being confirmed infected with the virus is false. This has been confirmed with plant management and was communicated to the Union leadership.
As the situation with Goodyear and everything else is fluid, and subject to change at anytime, we encourage you to watch for updates and keep in mind that rumors are usually just that, rumors.
Update: Governor orders schools closed and bans mass gatherings….
But does not include factories.
Update: Wed, March 18, 2020 9:45 AM …. More rumors about people in plant. As of this time there are no known cases involving the plant.
The plant is operating with “Business as Usual”. Any changes will be posted just as fast as we are told of them.
Update: Wed, March 18, 2020 11:45 AM…… The Company is now formulating a plan to have some sort of staggered shutdown. We do not have any information other than that at this time. Will post as soon as we are told anything else.
