Goodyear Caves to President Trump, Reverses Ban on Blue Lives Matter at Workplace

By Kristinn Taylor
Published August 20, 2020

Goodyear Tires caved to pressure from President Trump and announced Thursday the company will now allow workers to wear pro-police messages on clothing in the workplace, a reversal from just twenty-four hours ago when it issued a defiant statement that it would only allow Black Lives Matter and LGBT messages (“racial justice and equity issues”).

Goodyear Chairman Rich Kramer released a statement that said in part, “We have clarified our policy to make it clear associates can express support for law enforcement through apparel at Goodyear facilities.”

The controversy erupted this week when a screen image from a Topeka tire plant worker training session was posted online that showed what kind of messages are allowed at work and what messages are not allowed. Black Lives Matter and LGBT messages were specifically allowed, but Blue Lives Matter, All Lives Matter, MAGA or other political expressions or material were not allowed.

I don’t know. This tool bag makes it sound like they were misunderstood, and that of course employees can show support for law enforcement. 
 

He got caught on the verge of a huge backlash and boycott and is trying to save the company.  
 

The hell with them.

But it's still NOT ok to want to Make America Great Again...

Allowing Blue Lives Matter is a soft backpedal and still not nearly enough, they are STILL discriminating.

It seems to me that the American consumer should keep that uppermost in their mind from now on.

I have it on good authority the ban was only for Trump campaign paraphernalia and because of this, the president was just abusing his office in a temper tantrum.

Goodyear, you spoke your mind, live with the backlash. No amount of back peddling you do means a damn thing. The only reason you are back peddling is because you got exposed. What your execs did, they did, with your blessing, now go piss off. There are other tire company that don't hate Trump or the police.

I don't believe she would be dishonest because she didn't get her way in 2016 and is still throwing a temper tantrum of her own.  Do you?

They’ve seen what the leftwing extremists (socialists, marxists) do when not catered to: they resort to violence and threats. So they thought it would be better to cave in and pander. 

Alternatively, they are leftwing elitists who pretend to believe in socialism only because they want to stop anyone else from getting a shot at making it big. So they pander to the left. 

Either way, no excuse.

The leftwing execs at Goodyear are to blame for the losses the company is going to experience.  I hope the first firings/layoffs are at the top of the food chain...

Seems to me the smart thing to have done would be to “clarify” their position that it’s a place of work and expect proper business attire. It’s not a campaign rally or a political event, so all attire must reflect that. 
 

But expecting leftists to decide business, work, and shareholder value is more important than the leftist cause, I guess it’s a bridge too far.

Cant help but wonder how many PD's and State County or City govs decided to cancel or not buy Goodyear tires.  Also thinking someone may have said you f'ng idiots, DO YOU not realize how much gov contracts are worth?  Truck, airplaine tires, hoses...they are a big customer!  'Social Justice' wont make this company money.

Amen. Cat's already out of the bag. You revealed how you felt. Matters not what you do now. It's also ironic when i was a peace officer near every police car in the free world had goodyear tires on it.

Have never bought Goodyear tires in my life. And never will.

Get woke, go broke.

It is likely that not many did.  Institutional investors like mutual funds, pension plans and insurance companies own 80% of the stocks on the New York Stock Exchange, so most shareholders own shares indirectly.  What the investment officers care about is their quarterly results in comparison to the general market and other investment officers.  What they are looking for in the wake of Goodyear's employee relations debacle is the company's long term prospects.  If they think Goodyear will recover from its recent price drop, they may see this as a chance to buy in at a low price.

Don't forget the OEM contracts with car manufacturers. . .
