Their tires have sucked for about 10 years now. Michelin then hankook ..........

Bought a new sliverado LTZ in 2014 Came with goodyear SRA radials. It was raining when I drove it home and they wouldn't take off at a red light on a small hill. Didn't even go into garage went back to dealer said "put Michelin LTX 's on it . Cost me another 600 but I never looked back.

Call em "Good-for-a-year" tires where I work.

That said, I just got some Goodyear Wrangler Fortitudes from Tire Rack that were $80 off each because they're a couple years old.

How long are we going to continue to let this crap go on? All the employees should walk out tomorrow and see how well they like that. This is getting absolutely ridiculous. BLM is sorta a political affiliated slogan, aren’t lgbtqrstuv people too(all lives matter).

Just curious:

How do we know that is an official Goodyear notice? It would be a simple enough task for anyone to photo shop something like that. And in this day and age of hate, revenge, ill will, and fake news, would not be surprising.

While I might agree, if they walk out, who’s gonna pay their bills? The vast majority of Americans live check to check whether it’s by poor judgment, management or life circumstances. Until the last 3 years, I was in the same boat. Finally figured out how stupid I was in terms of spending and made some serious changes. Now, if they could walk straight into other jobs, go for it. Frankly, idc if Goodyear burns to the ground. That’s what came on my new truck and they’re awful.


I keep desperately hoping that one day someone will call me "Sir" without adding "please calm down" or "you're causing a scene."

It's likely fake. I tried to Snopes check it but they don't seem to have anything on it yet.

I did a quick google search - Goodyear woke

It appears true. Multiple sources.
https://www.wibw.com/2020/08/18/goodyear-employees-say-new-no-tolerance-policy-is-discriminatory/

Looks like this slide was shown during a diversity training in house at Goodyear.
I could be wrong , but this is what is coming up on a Google search.

Here’s a novel idea....why don’t people there just go to work and leave all their personal expressions behind? Just concentrate on making good tires. When you punch in on a time clock, you loose your freedom to express yourself. That’s why many employers require uniforms for employees....level the field for everyone. No BLM, gay pride, MAGA, Biden, Blue Lives Matter, anti gun, etc......Nobody cares, you’re there to build tires, not to make a statement.

you should start the counter protest in a clever way start making up shirts hats , masks GEM you can make them with a white t-shirt and a sharpie marker or you can go all out and have them screen printed get everyone who disagrees with the policies of Goodyear to wear one to work.

GEM Goodyear employees matter when they tell you that is banned or hate speech ect... tell them what it means Goodyear Employees matter so quit selling out your employees and telling them they are wrong , hateful for loving their country and wanting to see it whole and prosperous.

Sorry, not sure why link didn't work. But anyway it's not a fake story and Goodyear doubled down on their stupidity with their response to it.


13 NEWS has reached out to Goodyear about the slide. They did not answer questions when asked if the slide was part of a training from their main office.
“Goodyear is committed to fostering an inclusive and respectful workplace where all of our associates can do their best in a spirit of teamwork. As part of this commitment, we do allow our associates to express their support on racial injustice and other equity issues but ask that they refrain from workplace expressions, verbal or otherwise, in support of political campaigning for any candidate or political party as well as other similar forms of advocacy that fall outside the scope of equity issues.”
Melissa Monaco, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company
