A vote to unionize the hourly work force failed at Lund Boats' plant in New York Mills, Minn.

Of 240 hourly workers eligible to vote, 85 percent opposed unionization on Dec. 2, the Echo Press newspaper of Alexandria, Minn., reported.

"Our belief was that unionization was not in the best interest of the employees, nor the business," Brunswick spokesman Dan Kubera told the newspaper. "We are gratified by the outcome. We engaged our work force in an open and frank dialogue on reasons to support the company's belief and why unionization was not in their best interest."
