More layoffs in the stateline.

Dozens of employees at the Kelly Springfield Tire Pant in Freeport are the next to go. Goodyear representatives say they will eliminate 30 salaried jobs at the Freeport plant and more than 500 across the country.

The cost-cutting move is part of the agreement Goodyear reached with united steelworkers union members earlier this month. Under the agreement Goodyear will reduce operating costs by laying off managers and salaried staff on its payroll.

More cost-cutting moves are expected to be announced next week.
