Disgruntled Workers Burn Tires to Block Two Managers in Goodyear Factory

Angry workers at the Goodyear factory in northern France detained two company managers on Monday. The workers used tires to blocka meeting room door inside the factory.

The workers at the factory got angry because the Ohio-based giant declared in 2013 that they planned to close the 1,250-worker plant in Amiens by the end of 2014. This incident has been reported to be the latest in the series of flare-ups since after the announcement of the closure by the company.

The story recalls on an incident of 'boss-napping' that became rampant in 2009 because of steep fall in economic sector. The General Confederation of Labour (CGT) union said that after the end of the meeting, the workers did not allow manager and a human resources chief to leave the meeting room.

This plant is among many, which suffered from Europe's shrinking auto industry and is located at a distance of about 60 miles north of the French capital, Paris.

Goodyear official representative informed that the two mangers were being held against their will. The company plans to take help of police to keep control over the angered workers.
