The 200 year old factory is inefficient and they have moving production slowly out for years. You notice the state that court then are Right To Work States? Why did the unionize? When they are gone maybe they will realize that they were the ONLY unionized Remington plant.
Just as a Union Fork & Hoe worker who production was moved to North Carolina. A Hyosung worker w in Utica that saw their plant move to Decatur Alabama. Don't you people remember Univac (now IBM) Standard Furniture or how about Library Bureau? Why not Google those companies and find out they are doing fine once they got away from the union. Remember Chicago Pneumatic?
If you make demands they can't afford they will leave forever.

the woodchuck's of the mohawk valley think they are worth more than the remington a world class company will pay. when they move out and prosper at a non union plant (like all of their other plants are) what will those drones blame it on. where will they work wal-mart? not likely as they will be black listed because of their insane demands on remington.
IF REMINGTON LEAVES MAYBE THE UNION WILL TAKE CARE OF THEM.
