Titan International Inc. has reached tentative agreements with the United Steelworkers (USW) unions representing its plants in Des Moines, Iowa; Bryan, Ohio; and Freeport, Ill. Votes are expected in the coming weeks.

Paul Reitz, CEO and president of Titan, announced the tentative agreements during the company’s first-quarter earnings call on May 4, 2017. The current labor agreements expired in November 2016, and operations at the plants have continued while both sides worked on negotiations.

“Titan has a longstanding, good relationship with the USW, as evidenced over the past couple of years when we worked closely together to present cases to the International Trade Commission (ITC) regarding OTR tires from China, India and Sri Lanka.,” Reitz said. “Their support in these cases was greatly appreciated and instrumental in the successful determinations from the ITC. For more than 20 years, we’ve viewed the USW and its members as an integral part of the Titan team and we appreciate their hard work in building quality tires day-in and day-out at our North American tire plants.”

West Coast Ports Labor Dispute is Over

Shippers and dockworkers reached a tentative deal before the weekend, ending a labor dispute that has suspended the loading and unloading of freighters across 29 West Coast ports. Normal operations at the ports resumed on Feb. 21, according to the New York Times.

“The parties have agreed to ensure there are fully operational ports up and down the West Coast,” said U.S. Labor Secretary Tom Perez, who was dispatched by the federal government to help the two parties negotiate a deal. According to Perez, the tentative agreement is a five-year contract.

The deal resolves an ongoing situation that has lasted since July 2014. The New York Times reported that it could be months until normal operations clear the ports’ backlog. The disputes crippled West Coast ports, harming many businesses, including retailers.

“The congestion, slowdowns and suspensions over the last few months have had a significant economic impact on the entire supply chain and those who rely on the West Coast ports to move their goods and products around the world and throughout the country,” said Matthew Shay, president and CEO of The National Retail Federation.
