What kind of buyout is Goodyear offering the union members? Local 959 voted to approve local union officials negotiate a buyout for the older workers ready to retire. I hope you get a good severance package....three thousand dollars for every years service unlimited, or, 5 years service+5 years age added to your pension plan. Good Luck!
michael-macs offer is correct. we dont have numbers on how many took it yet. deadline noon monday. they are discretionary buyouts by classification not plant seniority, if they are not reducing your classification you cant take it while someone with less seniority in a position they want to reduce can take it. plus we are reducing our overall number of associates and production below figures agreed to in 2009 master contract.passed 675 to 595.m 1/3 of union did not vote? cant get a satisfactory answer as to how one local can change parts of a master contract by themselves.
