The United Steelworkers Local 831 union has approved an agreement with Goodyear Tire & Rubber Co. that will mean more than 400 Danville employees will lose their jobs through buyouts and layoffs starting in March.

Under the plan, all workers will work 8-hour shifts over five-day weeks. About 200 employees will be offered buyouts. The plant currently operates 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

The plan also includes weeklong furloughs in March and August.

The plant employs more than 2,400 people. (Danville Register & Bee)
