Thank you ALL for yesterday’s support. An overwhelming number of active and retired members came to support our brothers and sisters exiting the plant, showing great strength and solidarity within Local 959.
We are working under a 24-hour rolling extension. A notice was given at the time of the agreed extension. The deadline is now set for 6:00 pm today.
Continue working safely and standing strong. Oncoming shift should be prepared to work unless a strike is called.
If a strike is called, we will be picketing ONLY at the designated picket area, from the entrance to the stop light. Do not cross over onto Goodyear’s property.
Parking: Please consider carpooling with one another from the union hall over to the picket line.
If you park by the plant, park PAST the SUB station. Do not Park along the road from Ramsey St to the entrance. This reserved area is for safe picketing only. Do not block any gates.
We are still awaiting a Fair Contract Agreement! While your negotiation committee continues talks with the Company, we ask you to stay safe and focused when working.
Should the time come, and work must be ceased, anyone who is not working, please feel free to come and support our union brothers and sisters exiting the plant.
Picket duty will begin Saturday at 4:00 am. We ask ALL of D Crew, departments 330, 340, 430, and 435, to picket from 4:00 am until 7:00 am and resume the regular picketing according to the posted picket duty assignments.
Parking: Please consider carpooling with one another from the union hall over to the picket lines.
