Goodyear Strike Ends

A strike at Goodyear tire and Rubber Company is over.

On Tuesday, the union representing striking united steelworkers approved a new contract by a two-to-one margin.

The vote ends the strike that began back on October 5th.

The agreement creates a billion dollar fund for retirees, which the union says was one of the major reasons for the strike.

Striking workers could return to their jobs as early as Tuesday.

Goodyear is the world's third largest tire-maker.
