Recent In-plant Closings Don’t Add Up
The ACUP conference wrapped up not long ago. I had planned to devote this blog to describing the conference—the informative educational sessions; the opportunity to network with peers and colleagues from many parts of the world; and, of course, our gracious host, Bucknell University. But, ACUP, as great as it was, was overshadowed by the number of in-plant closings announced in the past few weeks.
