A closer look
The Police Tribune
This all started when someone put a photo of a Goodyear training slide on social media, complaining the policy was “discriminatory.” A regional office offered examples of what was acceptable and unacceptable attire. No political attire — check.
Expressions calling for social equity and racial justice are A-okay, but pushback against calls for equality are not acceptable.
Melissa Monaco, The Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company furnished the following statement:
“Goodyear is committed to fostering an inclusive and respectful workplace where all of our associates can do their best in a spirit of teamwork. As part of this commitment, we do allow our associates to express their support on racial injustice and other equity issues but ask that they refrain from workplace expressions, verbal or otherwise, in support of political campaigning for any candidate or political party as well as other similar forms of advocacy that fall outside the scope of equity issues.”
