Ilion Mayor Terry Leonard tells us he received word Wednesday from the plant manager that Remington will enact involuntary furloughs due to market conditions and high inventory levels. Leonard says days will be taken out of the production schedule.

A furlough is when a company requires employees to take time off without pay, often in an effort to save money during a period of decreased workload.

The exact number of dates, and when they will happen, will be announced within the next week.

Remington laid off 122 employees in March, and another 60 workers in September of 2017. The company marked its 200th anniversary in 2016.
