Abstract : The document surveys how in the context of a civil service situation, the employees cope effectively in the earlier time periods with the announcement to close their work installation. They may be angry, oppose the closing, and have many personal difficulties to face as they deal with the situation, but whatever negative attitudes exist do not generalize to all other areas. A clear majority are reported to continue to show satisfaction with their jobs. Personality disruption, as far as measured, does not seem evident. (Author)
