Goodyear and the United Steelworkers reached agreements in December on new contracts covering about 15,000 unionized hourly workers who had been on strike since Oct. 5. Striking workers began returning to the plants on Tuesday.

A full supply of tires and engineered products is expected to be available soon thereafter, Goodyear said.
