On November 28th, 2011, Cooper Tire & Rubber locked out 1,050 workers members of the United Steelworkers in Findlay, Ohio. When Cooper Tire was losing money in 2008, these employees gave up $31 million in concessions to help their employer stay alive.
Cooper Tire has since rebounded, raking in $300 million in profits – and handing corporate executives millions in raises and bonuses. Workers simply want a fair deal that recognizes their sacrifice. Instead they have been left out in the cold and locked out.
You can help fight back against corporate greed and help Cooper Tire workers get back to work.
Email Cooper Tire CEO Roy Armes to urge him to end the lockout and negotiate fairly.
