Remington Arms dont really care about village residents, they pay no taxes, about 90 percent of the employees come from outside the village, most 10 to 15 miles away.

why should they care about the towns...with there own workers airing the dirty laundry on this snitch site....

i aplaude them....move to where they will be apperacated...and if they dont pay taxes...so what...look at all the business that that is made from the folks comming 10-15 miles away...gas stations...food places....liquor stores...all these places pay taxes...and would pay less if it wasnt from sales....

I hope they do not close the plant. All the local bars would close and would have travel to uica to get a drink.

abcforever, you're way off with your thoughts about where the workers live. Most of the 1100 people that work there do live in the valley. There are some that live outside the valley, but not many.

unions will say anything & tecnically can't get you anything anymore - their time has come & gone - let the arms heaad to a single floor state of the art facility IN THE VALLEY - keep the jobs here or watch the Mohawk Valley become another ghost of an existence.

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.

The Village of Ilion and Herkimer county willl soon need a plan and major finicial assistance and committment from the Federal and state governments. Just like when Griffis AFB left Rome, Ilion and the county will face years of population decline, higher taxes, and lower property values.
The key to recovery is to invest, diversify, improve infrastructure and more importantly have a plan and vision for the future.There is much potential and promise with Nano technology, toursim /recreation, and higher education.
Voters need to elect capable individuals who have a vision andshow true leadership; compare Oneida County's recovery and success under Executive Picante with the decads of continued decline under Wallace and incapable reactionary Herkimer County Legislature.
Time for change and prepare for the future!

Perfect example of non visionaries and incapable leadership. As we can see Ilion and NY are not alone in the loss of the gun manufacturing industry. The "Safe ACT" is not law in these other states; it is as the Arms states ,efficiency and good business. Instead of blaming the loss of jobs on this Legislation, leaders ned to see the reality of a 200 year old facility, high taxes, lack of access to a nearby international airport, and a host community with no or very little government contract connections, or quality of life.
Set the foundation and perhaps a new facility might entice Remington to stay, but to build on a non existant foundation just doesn't make good business sense,

good job of saying a bunch without saying anything real. "Set the foundation" -- what does that mean and entail? what's the solution?

sorry, not blaming you -- there >is< no solution. the valley is miserable and bound to get worse. LEAVE if you can !

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.
So well said
