(Akron/Tire Review) Titan International withdrew its nearly six-year-old racketeering suit against the United Steelworkers (USW) and 125 union workers.

The RICO suit stemmed from the USW’s 40-month long strike against Titan plants.

Consequently, the USW withdrew its National Labor Relations Board charge that Titan filed the RICO suit to retaliate against striking workers.

The RICO suit dismissal was approved by the court, and there was no admission of wrongdoing against the defendants.

The suit and civil case was brought in September 2000, with Titan seeking multi-millions of dollars in damages from the union and the union workers. Individual defendants included top USW officers, six USW district directors, the presidents of two USW local unions, and numerous Steelworker members.
