Goodyear, union agree terms for closure of Philippsburg factory in Germany

Last October Goodyear Dunlop announced plans to close its Philippsburg tyre plant in southern Germany, and these plans are now official: The tyre maker reports it has agreed to terms for a redundancy plan with the union representing the plant’s 880-strong workforce.

Regarding the plan reached with the IG BCE union, Goodyear Dunlop’s group managing director DACH Jürgen Titz states: “In addition to a fair settlement, we’re working together with a transfer company. This specialises in working together with employees to develop individually-tailored solutions that facilitate their entry into a new occupation.”
