American Standard Closing N.J. Plant
The plant has 274 employees, including 245 who are members of the Glass Molders, Pottery, Plastics & Allied Workers International union. Company and union officials plan to meet soon to discuss severance packages and other issues related to the closing, including the possibility of relocating some workers to other facilities. Laurie Breininger, the company's vice president of plumbing products- Americas, said the plant was being shut down "because it's one of our oldest and smallest plants, operating at only half capacity." The company had announced Dec. 28 that it planned to close an unidentified plant as part of a consolidation plan that includes cutting 1,200 jobs.
