Members of the International Association of Machinist Local 1848 have rejected what Hudbay called their final contract offer to the Union. Information meetings and ratification votes were held in Snow Lake Sunday and Flin Flon yesterday.
Union President Rene Beauchamp reports they had 156 members vote which is 87 percent of their membership. He says they voted 96 percent to reject the contract offer. He says the next step is to contact Hudbay and try to get back to the table to restart negotiations.
