Workers at a Topeka Goodyear plant have been part of a national strike by the United Steelworkers, seeking retirement security and job safety. You can sign a petition to support the workers as the strike heads into the holidays.
And given that 16,000 USW workers nationwide are going to be on strike through the holidays, now is a good time to help them out. Every penny donated to the strike fund will go to striking workers.
Three years ago, the USW’s workers and retirees gave Goodyear big concessions to keep the company out of bankruptcy. Now the company has healthy margins and executives are getting big bonuses, but those executives are still holding out for more cuts from labor.
If you can help the workers on the line, I’m sure they’d appreciate it.
