Cooper reaches tentative agreement at Texarkana

From the Toledo Blade comes word that Cooper Tire & Rubber has reached a tentative agreement with the union that represents its Texarkana, Arkansas tire plant, a union official in Texarkana said Friday morning.

David Beard, a spokesman for United Steel Workers Local 752L, said the two sides reached the tentative agreement late Thursday night. The previous contract between Cooper and Local 752 expired at 11:59 p.m. Thursday. Mr. Beard said the proposal would be presented to the membership Wednesday. The vote is expected to take place Thursday.

Local 752L represents about 1,500 hourly workers.

Cooper’s plant in Findlay, Ohio has been on lock-out since just after Thanksgiving.
