Firestone workers in Orange return to work Monday


About 125 striking steelworkers can go back to work the day after Easter and wait for an employment agreement to be worked out.

The employees of the Firestone Polymers plant outside of Orange say a temporary deal has been reached allowing workers to go back to the jobsite Monday. 

Local 13-836 steelworkers are still hoping for better health care concessions. They say the current Firestone offer asks them to triple their deductibles.
