France: Furious Goodyear workers hold bosses captive in factory

Workers at Goodyear's Amiens tyre factory continue to hold two of their managers captive within the factory building, Tuesday, over plans to shut down the factory.

The Goodyear workers have been demanding a redundancy plan that would include more generous payoffs than initially agreed upon, and staged a series protests in which they set tyres ablaze in December 2013 to push their demands.

Bernard Glesser, human resources chief, and Michel Dheilly, director of production, have said that they are being treated well by their captors despite the uncomfortable situation.
