More than 360 employees at FCI Electronics in Massachusetts are applying collectively for a new job.
After the telecoms electronics company decided to shut down its Clearfield plant, the workers are promoting themselves online and in trade magazines as a made-to-order workforce in a last-ditch effort to remain together.
Jim Afton, a 37 year-old senior staff engineer, who has worked for FCI since 1987, told Associated Press that there was a strong community in the town and that the workers had decided to do something different and find themselves a new company.
Betsy Savel, an operator on the assembly line, suggested that the workers build a website touting the engineers, tool makers and line workers as a single workforce.
But the offer on the site, which was paid for in part with profits from the plant's vending machines, has had no takers so far.
The staff believe that the workforce, which comprises 26 engineers, 74 tool and die makers, 16 managers, 208 assembly line workers and 30 workers in shipping, computer support and other jobs, would be an asset to any interested company.
"We've had a perfect attendance average for eight years," said Afton. "Most employees have never missed a day."
The industry had a banner year in 2000 but then slumped badly, and Paris-based FCI began laying off workers.
