Briggs & Stratton employees reject contract in low vote turnout
Local Briggs & Stratton Corp. union employees have again rejected a contract proposal in a vote with low turnout.
Workers voted 109-22 to reject the proposal Sunday, said Briggs spokeswoman Laura Timm. That was a lower turnout than the rejected proposal in August in which just 162 voted, out of the approximately 395 employees in Wauwatosa and Menomonee Falls represented by United Steelworkers Local 2-232.
Ã¢;Â€Âoe;We are extremely disappointed in (SundayÃ¢;Â€Â™s) vote,Ã¢;Â€Â; Timm said in an email to The BusinessÃ¢;Â€Â¦;
