need wordpower help
The company I work for has been having periodic shutdown weeks in our plant. But it is not a complete shutdown...we keep a small crew working to help catch up areas that need it and the office remains fully staffed with no interruption there.
What I am looking for is a better word than "shutdown" It conveys such a negative feeling. (and not entirely accurate) I thought of "furlough", but that doesn't feel a whole lot better.
This affect our client as we work on a production schedule and the lead times get adjusted a week back. They have plenty of notice, so that is not the issue.
It's just not a total shutdown...
Thanks for any help!
