France -Goodyear conflict comes to an end -January 22, 2014

The industrial dispute at Goodyear has polarised over recent months. The management filed a lawsuit against the trade union CGT over the forced detaining of two executives and the ongoing occupation of the Amiens-Nord plant. Workers at the plant have been demanding new negotiations over severance packages since Goodyear notified the union of its intention to close the site. According to the CGT the company demonstrated a dismissive attitude towards negotiations on a voluntary redundancy scheme with payoffs for departing workers. However, the latest news is that a deal has been reached that provides significant improvements in benefits for the 1,173 employees. The CGT agreed to end the occupation of the plant and halt legal action meant to delay its closing.
