Albany- The votes are in and workers at Cooper Tire reject the idea of a union. The count was finished just after eleven Wednesday night.

One thousand two hundred and twenty workers voted. Voting for the union were 465 workers. Voting against unionization were 755 voters. There were seven votes challenged.

Workers voted both Tuesday and Wednesday whether to join the United Steelworkers of America. Voting ended Wednesday at nine p.m. Union representatives, workers, company officials, and representatives from the National Labor Relations Board counted the votes.

Because the union was voted down, workers will have to wait one year before they could try another vote.
