Written Assignment #2
You are the vice president for human resources of the General Widget Corporation. The corporation’s share of the market has declined dramatically. The corporation has been operating in the red—with huge losses! The CEO has announced a drastic plan to reduce costs to stem the losses. He said that a plant in Dallas, Texas, or a plant in Ann Arbor, Michigan, may be closed.
Each plant has about 3,000 employees—each manufacturer the same product. The CEO said that production of the two plants may be consolidated or merged into one plant.
Both plants are organized by a strong international union.
The CEO asks you to prepare a report for him on what factors he and the president should examine and consider in making their decision as to which plant to close and which plant to continue operating.
In your report you are to indicate what factors should be examined and why they should be considered. You are NOT to make any recommendations. You are to present all the critical factors which the top executives should examine in making their decision.
This paper should be 2 to 3 pages in length not including the coverage page and reference page.
