Well the only question left is where Is Remington moving to? 100 mile away or Frankfort

Word at the plant is the old pumpkin patch. The whole 100 miles means we keep our jobs.101 miles, bye bye work hello unemployment

If the company intended to stay local they would have included the new location in the security clause rather than striking the whole thing from the contract.

Five days after the contract passed the company is up for sale. Hope that 500 lasts you awhile.

The sale has nothing to do with the union contract.

but if another gun company buys you they could shut you down and take your orders or shut you down and reopen under another name then that voids your contract good luck

Remington has been sold before, remember Dupont, CD and R and Cerberus. There's never been a problem, it's usually pretty seamless. It'll be sold, and business will pretty much go on as usual, the only difference this time is that Bushmaster is questionable for the future. Cerberus felt they had to get out because they are affiliated with the California Teacher's union who wanted nothing to do with guns. It has nothing to do with the Union or the contract.

Yes Remington will be moving out of New York State and will be expanding their facilities in Kentucky, where all the firearms will begin to be manufactured.
The transfer of machinery etc will begin in the spring 2014. Employees will be offered a buy out deal or the chance to relocate to Kentucky with a 25% cut in yearly salary or pay.
