The letter drew a furious reaction from unions.
"This is an insulting letter," said Mickael Wamen, the CGT union's representative at the Goodyear plant, saying it showed Taylor "belongs more in an insane asylum than at the head of a multinational corporation".
He said the union was planning to file a lawsuit in the United States against Goodyear and Titan over the closure of the plant.
Titan had one point been touted as a potential saviour of the factory, which produces tyres for agricultural vehicles and which Goodyear says it was forced to close after unions repeatedly rejected efforts to cut costs.
France's Communist Party also expressed outrage at the letter, calling it "an appalling provocation coupled with xenophobia against French workers."
