STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

This is the last week of production at Stillwater's Mercury Marine plant. 

In 2009, Mercury Marine announced it was closing its Stillwater facility, putting 380 people out of work.

The closing follows a union dispute in 2009 with the company's Fond du Lac, Wisconsin plant. After the union rejected concessions the company had sought, Mercury Marine announced the Wisconsin operation would move to Stillwater, to its non-union plant.

However, the company then gave union members in Wisconsin another voting opportunity and then announced the Stillwater plant, which has been open nearly 40 years, would close.

This week, the remaining workers in Stillwater will either be laid off or retire. The plant will officially be closed for good on December 22, 2011.
