Fighting for Families

Stand with Remington Workers!

 

On October 26, more than 600 Ilion, New York workers from Remington Arms were laid off.

While discussions are ongoing to reopen the plant under new owners, the company is refusing to pay severance and accrued vacation benefits, as it is obligated to do under its collective bargaining agreement with the United Mine Workers of America.

The old owners are taking money out of the pockets of the workers, food from their families. They are cutting off health care for more than 1,000 people, many in the middle of cancer treatments, surgical recovery, physical therapy, or other medical treatments.

We believe the old owners are legally required to pay their workers severance pay. But they are thumbing their nose at the law, and common decency.

Call Remington at 315-269-0745.

Tell them to live up to their obligations!

Remington refusal to pay severance to terminated workers is a “slap in the face”

“If they think they can get away with this without a fight from the UMWA they had better think again. Our members in Local Union 717 earned those benefits. We are going to do everything we can to ensure that they get them, and then continue working to get the plant reopened under new ownership as soon as possible.”
