    That is a good question....All I know is that all the foremen and some office personell are there at this time.
    My feeling, and this is conjecture on my part is that they may be getting Remington ready to sell.
    I , and 900 hourly workers are layed off until a start back date of 5 January, that date may change.

    Rumor has it that the food service contractor was told their services wouldn't be needed until sometime in Feb.

    the Mayfield, Ky plant(the one that builds the 597 and the 710) closed for a couple of weeks at a time evey december. i think last year it was closed for 3 weeks, might have been the whole month though.

    Maybe this will give Donald Zilhka another chance at Remington. Found this site the other day. It might require tin-foil hats... :D

    Sure hope you don't have to brown bag it through January. :D

    I for one have always liked remington products. i am absolutly devoted to the shotguns. Most of my rifles are Savages

    I hope everything turns out for the better

    That is an old article, S&W and H&K were sold some time ago, but I am sure that Zilhka would still be interested in Remington. How about the ammo plant in Lonoke, Ar? Are they closed as well?
