More talks about layoffs in 2019 and 2018 - there is a ton of rumors in the office. Last years we cut about 60 exempt positions in Findlay in the corp office. About 20 more were cut in Texarkana and Tupelo. With tariff issues, prices of material... — read more
Topics regarding layoffs at Cooper Tire & Rubber Co.
There is rumors of machines being deverted from tupelo to Texarkana to be installed. Is there any truth to this?

every new day is worse than the one before - cooper is struggling - get out while you can
only one person was let go this week - more to come in 2014- 2013 will be an interesting year too
The management is completely retarded - they should be collectively fired...
did not say I did not like working at Cooper you was the one pulling Cooper down for want they was doing. and not looking at what union was doing to their Boss ( the menbers)
Why can't you have a positive outlook like Choo Choo? Always telling jokes and willing to donate to local organizations....
Go ahead if you hate working at Cooper so much! I'm back to work and lovin it!
20+ Cooper worker at it's #1 plant in Tupelo.MS I could take a pay cut and go to work at the new Toyota plant here. But I will just stay in my non leader job at Cooper. Good by — read more
The only reason why CTR is still a going concern is to line pockets of managers through excessive pay and ridiculous bonuses. You can think what you want to think and sing the song about customers but really nothing else matters - they are just... — read more
What did you have to go back to Walmart now the unions are back to work, you scab! why don't you HIT the highway loser....
5 years NO pay raise . union did a good job.
Sounds like you guys finally have a contract too sign!! Way to stand strong!
What are you getting at hiway I do not care how much you made!
You are a dope management at gm took all the money in bonuses and ran the company into the ground! Look at gm now after the bailout record profits and stock price is up and still run by union shop
to @hiway If you do not work for cooper . please put your email on this site so I can send you a copy of my w-2 that shows you that I made just over $57,000.00 in 2011 in a small city in ms.
A union can ask for any thing it thinks it can get . just look at the pay that uaw got at gm before all the money ran out. urw thinks it can play the old playbook this time. but they may be very unhappy with what they finely get.
I remember when the bosses use to come down to the lunch room and eat all the venison I cooked. Now I am locked out making vension for my brothers and sisters! Funny how quick things change... Ya bra I just bought Coopers but will not buy again until... — read more
The only reason you need to know the time is you are trying to find out if I work under you so you can fire me! I do not work for your company! I Just can't stand corporate greed!
I'm in a union and and proud of it and I know that a union cannot ask for 10% of a companies profit! Unlike a CEO!!!! By the way MCD's stock is about $100,what is ctb's? They have realized that respecting their employees is part of success.... A non... — read more
will someone fix the time on this site. just posted at 7:50pm cst but it shows 1:53am on 7/17/12
You got it at work along with your bonus! You fake phony fraud!!! Go back to your desk and figure how you are going to get your next years bonus now that you have kicked out the hard workers that help get you your bonus!
i agree with family man, I won't buy Cooper Tires until they bring back their workers who are on the street right outside of the offices.
got it at work. why dont you ask your union rep. about it. do they really tell you everything? need a law to put a tape recorder in every meeting that union and company is in. just to help the union to tell the truth.
Show me some evidence of your statement about the union wanting 10%. You are a manager spreading propoganda!!!!
Any union brother or sister to cross that picket line is a scab whether it be a teamster, electrician, carpenter ups driver etc!!!!! who would do the work if this other union didn't cross the bosses haha. Spineless scabs!!
Union wants 10% of All profits from All plants even the union plant in Texarkana.and nonunion plants in Clarksdale. Melksham. Tupelo. and the plant they just bought in Sebra. and China. Why do the union in Findlay wants to take money from the union... — read more
So you're calling your fellow USW brother & sisters scabs?? I guess that's cool if it does something for ya and makes you feel superior.... — read more
Sounds like you work at Walmart!
Unions don't take money their members earn it through hard work and dedication!! Managment takes millions through bonuses and about 80% of them don't even deserve a salary!
Did anybody say that the union in Ohio wants 10% of All profits from ALL plants world wide!!!! That the union has not told members of All possable agreements to end stike.
cooper tires are good & affordable. screw the union! — read more
You mean SCABS!
Here ie the big picture! If more people were paid better salaries and benefits then these companies can charge more for their products and not need to produce over seas. When people make more money they tend spend more money Why is it you never hear... — read more
@Family Man: Just a fact, the majority of what you are calling "replacement workers" are permanent employees from the Texarkana and Tupelo Cooper plants with years of experience and good work records....
Unions are so over-rated with all the regulations and government involved. Sad when the US has always been the best country in the world to come down to competing overseas and able to do it cheaper. Now the new American dream is peace of mind simply... — read more
I have had a great experience with Cooper tires. My first purchase was back in 1987 I bought Mickey Thompson side biters my truck was a hit throughout town. Of course I was a teen back then, now I am an adult and it is wrong what this company is... — read more
I will not be buying anymore products from this company until they settle with the union!
