Recommended Posts

Hopefully they get things sorted out. That's a long row to hoe coming back from that mess

I googled the company and there are some pretty good articles where they discuss their plans. Sounds like a good move for the valley

I hope this is successful BUT they key lies here:

“Our hopes are to consolidate in Ilion and go back to an 800-employee facility. That number is highly contingent on our negotiations with the county and the state of New York, and, of course, the union.

I’m surprised they are still here in New York . I’m sure it’s inevitable they will be gone soon due to taxes. But yes that is a good sign for the workers!

Considering how tax hungry and unfriendly NY is to gun manufacturers, I’m a little surprised to see this .

I agree, but I really don't think he cares about anyone leaving. He says it's because of the weather. I often wonder if he has truly brainwashed himself into really believing that.

This very much surprises me but is a step in the right direction.  The arms plant is vital to the survival of Ilion, NY   There's not much else there or even close by.  

As Anti as Andy is, that's going to have to put some screws to him to aid with tax perks and incentives.  Plus that facility is likely a Brownfield.  I would love to see what efforts shield new company from that environmental liability.   

This is far from a done deal.  I'm seeing a lot of concessions that aren't on the union's agenda. 

Starting with "Employed at Will"

And I'm sure new company isn't looking to pay for passed earned benefits such as vacation. 

How are the 200 being picked.  Seniority?  I bet not.  More on skill set that would allow them to minimally staff. 

But I love the history of this facility and they did make quality guns for most of their duration.  I'm sure they have many skilled craftsmen capable of regaining a share of market.  My 870 is old dependable.  Never failed me.  Even in freezing rain.  Just had to rack it.

I really hope they find a way to work this out to mutually benefit.  I only way I see that happening is by to give on all sides and not just a squeeze play by one side.
