RAY OF HOPE
Posted: Friday, February 11, 2011 3:37 pm RAY OF HOPE — United Steel Workers Local 878 vice president Dale Carroll spoke at a news conference Friday morning, explaining the local union is holding onto hope the local Goodyear plant can be saved. Carroll said there is still “a ray of hope” that Goodyear won’t shut the plant down. He described the union workforce at the tire plant as “one of the best I’ve ever seen” and “resilient.” The local union was busy late last week and into the weekend reacting to the news from Goodyear that the local plant will be shut down by the end of this year. In response, Carroll said, “We will leave no stone unturned” in efforts to keep the plant open.
