General Electric's unions, including the one in Schenectady, have rejected a new contract with the company.
A majority of votes were cast for the contract, but several local unions voted against the deal.
Under union rules, there was enough of a protest vote to reject the contract.
The tentative agreement between union leaders and GE had agreed to wage increases spread across four years, and a compromise to control health care costs.
The two sides will now head back to the bargaining table.
