Our union is letting remington move 100 miles away. There is no part of the contract that says guns must be made in ilion. For the last 30yrs the contract said 700s and shotguns could only be made in ilion ny. Please vote no

yes they can move. the olny thing that the orignal deed states is that a store would have to be here if they did move. when dupont owned the company they had there problems but they were the best ones that the people ever had. these new owners are rapeing this company and its employees for all they have. for those that say that the people working there are babys, you try working there and see what it is like. you can run yours months all you want but try it and you will see what it is.

MIGHT BE MOVING, LOOKING TO MOVE,to a state of the art new buildng, probaby pumpkin patch in frankfort it's a win-win for union and it's members, it stated in the contract they would bring/ offer all union members jobs, if that was why you voted no you might want to pull your heads out of your asses and wake up, nobody else is giving 3% raises in the valley, let alone for 5 years garentied. Just hoping we don't get screwed even more this time.

per the contract that wasn't voted in, it say's they cannot move more than 100 miles away, read the contract, but by voting it down, they can move it anywhere away from you ungreatful ass%^$%&, thanks allot.

Nothing in that contact said they HAVE to stay...ask a union rep you dipsh!t...if they stay within 100 miles we are safe, if they go over then we are left with no job! Thats the problem you fu¢ks that vote yes don't understand everything you read, then spend the next 5yrs b¡T¢hing about it.

sounds like you might have been on the negoiating committee, giving us another shitty contract that is both lousy and misleading, also it doesn't say anything about movin g more than 101 miles, it srtates they will stay within that, i think you are just disgruntled, maybe you got passed over for a management job, and i'm not bitching about 3%, better than any other place in the valley, let me know who else offered to keep union jobs in new york, orion bus, fork and hoe , at least remington was staying in n.y. and a new building, no contract will satisfy everyone, now we live with the vote, i will not vote yes again, my next yes vote id=s a vote to strike, they are not going to give you a better contract than your union reps presented you, it hasn't happened the last two contracts an it will not happen this time. good luck in the unemployment line.
Uh oh

100 miles away?

Try 1250 miles.

NYS cannot keep them here if they have a desire to leave and there is nothing stating that they want to stay here in NYS. They have no loyalty to Ilion, NYS or you as an employee. They will do whatever they want if they feel that the bottom line will be better. This is business, man, not a charity event.

We all better hope they stay here locally or you might as well kiss this area goodnight. The money that flows around this area due to Remington is beyond what some people think, and it goes way beyond taxes.

Everyone keep their fingers crossed because if they move, this entire area is going to be so depressed that 1931 will look like a hay day.

Just look at what happened to Magnus in Syracuse and Hostess with its 50,000 jobs. If you think ANY union will make decisions for a company, you'd better think again.

I'm ready to retire after forty years here, so you younger bucks better go with the contract or they may pull up the stakes, and fast.

The UMWA members are nothing more than a bunch of whin ass losers. Half of you retards didn't graduate high school and the other half took shop.
I can teach anyone if an IQ over 40to turn on an off/on swicth on a machine. One reason remington machines has a green button and red buttons is to let the union worker know which is which, because 80 per cent can't read the words on or off. Where are you jerk offs going to go to work? Wal Mark !
I hear most of the UMWA union workers are to lazy to pick the lint out your ass. The UMWA members have NO balls. When Remington calls your bluff you fuckers will be running to the whore house union hall to vote yes. That is Yes sir. I will be over eating my donuts and drinking coffee watching everyone of you dicks line up to vote yes to your rightful Remington masters. I hope Remington sticks it in in your ass so far and hard you will not be able to shit for a week. My advice 2 the UMWA members is to realize you are NOTHING. Thats' right NOTHING, & that goes for that useless dick Yankovich and the jerk off Cecil Robert. Remington should teach your little union who is the boss. Really I don't know who has screwed you guys more, Remington or the UMWA -- LOL LOL LOL.

You people think you've got it so bad. Wait until the doors close and let's hear what you do then after your unemployment runs out. And that includes supervision. Most of them have only a high school education and that doesn't even cut it anymore in any other business. The supervision there is at the mercy of a contract being signed and Remington staying put or all of you will be greeting people at Wal-Mart. Merry Christmas.

They do not like this area or the faclitie that they presently have. They will be sticking their hand out for a few cool million this coming year for "capital projects", while implying that they will leave if they don't get it. It used to be called "being held hostage". Now it's called "smart business" ...
