A new twist Thursday to the battle between Cooper Tire and The United Steelworkers in Findlay.
According to the Findlay Courier, the city's Zoning Department removed union signs criticizing Cooper Tire from rights of way.
Findlay's zoning inspector told the paper this had nothing to do with the city being pro-business. It's just the department enforcing a new code which does not allow for signs of any type to be located in the city rights of way, those are usually the areas that extend from the curb to the sidewalk.
The previous ordinance banned signs in rights of way but signs could not be removed until 24 hours after they were found.
About a thousand unionized Cooper Tire workers have been locked out since November.
