    Union: 'Bittersweet' ending to Goodyear strike - By M.R. KROPKO, AP Wire
    AKRON, Ohio - Some Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. workers said their new contract with the world's third-largest tiremaker is a bittersweet ending to a 12-week strike.

    About 10,000 out of 14,000 striking United Steelworkers members from 12 Goodyear plants in 10 states voted Thursday night on the three-year agreement, which includes plans to close a Texas tire factory but creates a $1 billion health care fund for retirees.

    The contract was approved by all locals and by the overall membership by a two-to-one margin, the union said early Friday. Exact totals were not released. The contract needed to be approved by a majority of the locals - seven out of 12 - plus a majority of the voters.
