Goodyear workers approve buyout

October 26, 2012 7:46:13 PM PDT
Workers at the Goodyear tire plant in Fayetteville have reached an agreement that allows the company to offer buy-outs to workers.

That means 224 workers will be offered $2,000 per year of service, up to $50,000.

Goodyear said it needed to eliminate 200 jobs at the Fayetteville plant.

The buy-out will avoid layoffs, if enough workers take advantage of the offer.

Buy-out talks are expected to begin Monday.
