The CURA publications library is currently being digitized by the University of Minnesota Digital Conservancy. When the project is complete, the entire CURA publications library will be online and fully searchable. Unfortunately, during this process we are not able to honor individual requests for publications . Additionally, we no longer have physical copies of publications to send out.

New publications are digitized daily and the publications catalog on the CURA website is not automatically updated with links to scanned copies, so please search the CURA collection at the Digital Conservancy for the publications you are looking for:

Look at Four Plant Shutdowns in Minnesota.

Skidmore, Mark H.

What happens to the workers when a plant is shutdown? Four 1985 case studies in Minnesota are explored: Knudsen Trucking, Farmhand, Tonka, and Munsingwear. The amount of advance notice given to workers and the roles of company management, workers, community, and the state government in planning for the shutdown are noted for each company.
