It’s been more than two weeks, but the Conn-Selmer plant is still on strike, partly as a result of their failed lean effort it seems. As someone pointed out earlier, it’s not ALL of Conn-Selmer that is struggling with lean. Apparently there are good examples, but this plant in question makes low-end “Bach” instruments, which apparently have some different financial pressures. If you click on my earlier post, you see some interesting comments from apparent Bach insiders.
