Olin To Move Munitions Plant to Mississippi After Union Refuses Contract

Posted: November 15, 2010 by doubleplusundead in Liberal FAIL, Union Wins Again

Shooters will recognize the name Olin, for those that don’t…think WinchesterOlin is a major munitions producer, and has operated this plant in East Alton for over 100 years.  Olin already moved all rimfire production to the new Mississippi plant, and after the rejection of Olin’s proposed contract by the union, centerfire cartridge production will be moving to Mississippi as well.  Illinois, and East Alton in particular, are gonna hurt bad once Olin completes their relocation.  Olin warned that they were going to move the plant if they didn’t get some concessions from the unions.  So congrats union guys, you’ve voted yourselves out of the job, just like many of your other union brothers before you…feel stupid yet?

    Crossing state lines will not protect you once you’ve crossed the Unions: they own the IRS, EPA and OSHA. Governor Haley Barbour is a good ally, though. He’d be a good President as well.

    Democrats and unions never learn. Say goodbye to those jobs and the rank and file suffer and the union “leaders” walk away with pockets full of cash.

    Personally, I think all gun and ammo manufacturers should leave the unfree states anyway.

    Ronnie Barret had the best response to California law enforcement types lying about his products. He told them to go screw and he would not be selling them anymore rifles and he would not service the ones they’ve already bought.

    I will not sell, nor service, my rifles to those seeking to infringe upon the Constitution and the crystal clear rights it affords individuals to own firearms.

    He uses fewer “fucks” than eddiebear, but the meaning comes through in both letters.

  4. On behalf of Mississippians, I’d like to welcome Olin to the Hospitality State.
