As part of the ramping up process, the tiremaker will bring back about 400 workers who lost their jobs through buyouts and layoffs when the Danville plant went to a three-shift, five-day schedule in March 2009.

Goodyear reached a tentative agreement with USW Local 831 on July 21 after working out the details of a return plan with the labor union for the past several weeks. The company started calling back employees late last year as the market showed improvement.

The change back to the original schedule comes with a strengthening of the commercial truck and aviation tires market, which are produced at the Danville plant, according to Goodyear. The facility employs roughly 2,000.
