    Goodyear recruits scabs; strikers call solidarity rallies - BY PAUL MAILHOT, The Militant
    Many strikers here were pleased with the turnout, especially after news of company moves to break the strike. Goodyear has engaged Modern Industrial Services (MIS), an anti-labor outfit that advertises, “We will keep your unruly union strikers under control,” to begin assembling a strikebreaking force of “temporary workers.” An Opelika-Auburn News advertisement by MIS offers a “sign on bonus” and “top pay” for immediate openings at a “tire plant in Gadsden.”

    Goodyear Strikers Rally - By Lindsay Shively, WIBW, KS
    If you would like a more in-depth look at both sides of this strike, you can visit Goodyear's website at www.goodyearnegotiations.com, or the United Steel Worker's website at www.uswa.org.
