Mystic Seaport employees vote against unionizing

The employees of Mystic Seaport rejected an attempt to form a union in a 145-90 vote.

The election was conducted by the National Labor Relations Board in reaction to a petition filed July 6 by AFT Connecticut to organize all non-management employees of the museum, according to Mystic Seaport.

“We are very pleased by the outcome of the election,” Mystic Seaport president Steve White said in a statement. “By rejecting the union, our employees indicate they want to continue to have a direct, individual relationship with management and we believe that is the best way for us to work together. This has been a very divisive process for the entire staff and the next step is to immediately begin the healing process and address the issues and concerns the organizing process brought forward.”
