Our media partners at the Berkshire Eagle report the vote came after two weeks of negotiations between the defense contractor and the union IUE-CWA.
The sticking points are wages and health care benefits.
Members voted no on the first proposal from the union bargaining committee and the company.
Talks will likely begin again in the next couple weeks.
