Almost 600 employees at the Remington Arms plant in Ilion, New York, were told Friday that they would be terminated effective Monday, the local union said.

The Remington Outdoor Company is also refusing to pay severance and accrued vacation benefits, according to a statement from the United Mine Workers of America (UMWA), the union that represents the workers.

Remington is obligated to pay severance and vacation benefits under a collective bargaining agreement, UMWA officials said.

Remington is terminating 585 employees, according to UMWA.

Ilion, a small Herkimer County village of 8,000 people, is the birthplace of America's oldest gunmaker, which first started making guns there in 1816.
