According to reports,Taylor is reconsidering his abandoned takeover bid for the plant, and the union wants give their demands directly to Taylor in his U.S. office.

Taylor’s latest offer is for part of the operation and would save roughly 300 of the 1,200 jobs at the plant.  One of his previous offers, which would have preserved more jobs, was rejected by the union.

"We’re in favor of talks, we’re in favor of pushing things forward, but only insofar as nobody is left behind," Mickael Wamen, head representative at Goodyear for the CGT union, which represents a majority of workers, told Reuters.

No word on if Taylor has agreed to sit down with union members.
