After goggling DRS several times I found that they are the most dishonest company dealing with government contacts, which we all knew as employee's. As an employee there I have found that I pay my own paycheck through fraud that they charge back to the government. All employees have to do an ethics class, that covers the whole gambit, telling us never to falsify our time on a project. The next day when I clock in my time has been adjusted, and time added on projects I did not work on. The whole local management needs to be replaced with honest people that care about the company and their people. Not people like Ronnie Harris who is a tyrant and like to scare people into his uneducated way of thinking. We the people of West Plains can change the waste this company is costing the government in waste, The only reason the company is Union is so they can sell their product to companies like Oshkosh, the Union is owned by the company for their own convenience. Large layoffs are coming fast, be proud West Plains, draw your unemployment and go fishing. DRS has killed it's self, because of their greed!

Finmeccanica is a large Italian manufacturing conglomerate of weapon and defense systems. I'm sure they are not highly concerned about one little plant in rural Missouri, USA.

Finmeccanica, can not even come on the property at DRS, Drs is ran out of Saint Louis, this is because it is a defense contractor to the US. DRS can't sell a product to a foreign government without approval of the US Government. DRS is not just in one little plant in rural Missouri, it has plants all over the United States. Everything packrat said is true.

Government security agencies have awarded DRS some of the highest rankings in the security and compliance sectors. Most companies in our industry are facing layoffs due to withdrawals from Iraq and Afghanistan and major cuts to the defense budget and programs that DRS contributed to. It is easy to be disgruntled, especially if you unfortunately lost your job. But DRS is a provider to products and services for our warfighters, and your badmouthing DRS does you and them a disservice. If you have proof of wrongdoing, there are avenues you can pursue, DRS provides good jobs to over 9000 American workers, and if it did not acquire the West Plains facility, who knows if it would still be there today.
