Thread regarding Goodyear layoffs

Make sure you don't get hurt

I’ve been with Goodyear for a number of years. Never had a problem until recently when I had an injury. Reported it to my supervisor who gave me the impression he didn’t believe me. He just wanted me to ‘s--- it up’ by taking some OTC medicine to lessen the pain I was in.

He basically thought I was lying about getting injured just to get time off. I wasn’t even trying for workman’s comp. or anything, just wanted him aware that I had hurt myself.

This incident shows me how much my manager cared about the safety and well being of his employees which is apparently - NOT A LOT!

Soon some of us WILL get hurt - right where the sun shines the darkest as they start layoffs to balance the books and hide the fact that they hired some incompetent "business managers" instead of hiring and promoting American culture through American workforce. Keep the 401K's ready and handy

Man, the way the company is steadily getting devalued is giving me cancer. Over 30% loss in company value in the last 5 months.

How do they justify hiring cost of all these Business Development managers and innovation experts in Akron when core business is suffering and company has no respect for safety of workers and American lives? What are they innovating?! Alternate tire-tracks? And us American workers are facing the axe. The "managers" are sitting around chewing sandwiches and shooting the sh!t.

Here's coverage over poor safety and production quality at Goodyear plants where several workers have given sworn statements in lawsuits: https://www.yahoo.com/news/treading-dangerously-lax-safety-inside-151723798.html

American workers are dying of accidents due to poor working safety conditions, production quality of tires are getting poorer. In EMEA, I heard from some colleagues, the same thing is going on: someone with a pricey MBA and a Bangalore accent is trying tell Americans, French and Germans how to run a business in their own country. Sometimes the language and "I know it all" attitude gets so much on my nerves, i feel like I am gonna have a stroke! Can they not find so called "Business Development Managers" who have more respect for different cultures and nations?
