Avon China fails and declines for 5 years and what happens? Instead of cutting what is obviously a failure loose, Avon destroys hundreds of US jobs to send volume to the China plant in a failed attempt to allow it to aborb its unjustifiable costs. And to make matters worse they build a multimillion R&D center there to service a nonexistant business. A seed that does not grow after 5 years of watering has no potential. I have warned the associates left in North America to protect themselves from allowing more of this to happen. It is about to. If union negotiations were underway it would be virtually impossible for Avon to cut those jobs in negotiation. Time is running out people. You are soon going to pay with your economic lives for the management incompetence that has ruined Avon if you do not act.
