United Mine Workers of America’s Objection to Debtors’ Proposed Sale

We continue to fight in the bankruptcy court for the jobs of our members at Local Union 717 at Remington Arms.

The UMWA today filed an objection to Remington’s plan to sell its assets through the bankruptcy process without first negotiating a new collective bargaining agreement.

“By their own actions, the Debtors have already prevented the possible occurrence of good faith negotiations,” the UMWA’s objection says.
