Executives at a Goodyear tyre plant in Amiens, northern France, presented today a plan to close the site, which employs 1,173 workers. 'Closing the factory is the only option after five years of unsuccessful negotiations,' said a statement, which added that the plan had been presented to a works committee and would serve as the basis for further consultations with workers' representatives.
