ABSTRACT
The article represents the author's opinion on the after effects of the declaration by the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC) that the United Steelworkers of America (USW) union was correct that Chinese tire imports have disrupted the U.S. market, causing plant closings and job losses. The author says that there are several possible outcomes and some serious ramifications to all the players if the ITC decides to impose quotas on Chinese tire imports.
