Associated Press: The IBM Client Innovation Center in Dubuque will close within four months, the big tech company said Wednesday, taking nearly 350 jobs with it. An IBM spokesman said the company will consolidate the Dubuque tech support and outsourcing center with its center in Columbia, Mo. Most employees in Dubuque will be given the opportunity to relocate to the Columbia facility or take a severance package that will include a two-year extension of health benefits.
