Nov. 22--DANVILLE -- State and national labor activists told striking Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. workers yesterday that "you're right and the company is wrong" and predicted the workers will win.
"We will fight as long as it takes," Richard Trumka, secretary-treasurer of the
AFL-CIO told the workers during a more than two-hour rally at Bibleway Worldwide Church. Most of the 2,200 striking workers attended.
Organizers called yesterday's rally a protest of the loss of American jobs to foreign countries and of Goodyear's refusal "to negotiate a fair and equitable contract" with 15,000 union workers at 16 plants.
