TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Union officials have announced a tentative agreement with management at the Topeka Goodyear Tire & Rubber plant.

Robert Tripp, president of United Steelworkers Local 307, says the union isn't releasing details about the proposed contract until the members voted on whether to approve it.

The Topeka Capital-Journal reports (http://bit.ly/19HTl1W ) the local union had set a deadline of 1 p.m. Friday to reach an agreement on the local portion of its labor contract. The local tentative agreement announced Friday covers such issues as scheduling and work rules. Most compensation issues are handled at the national level.

The Topeka plant employs 1,550 workers, with 1,400 covered by the USW.

Whitney Watson, Goodyear spokesman for the Topeka plant, says the agreement will go into effect if the union members approve it.
