Turnout has reportedly been steady in Fond du Lac, Wis., as Mercury Marine union members take a second vote on a proposed labor contract.

Union members said turnout was steady in the first day of voting Thursday, with several hundred of about 850 eligible voters casting ballots, according to a report in the Journal Sentinel newspaper.

Voting was scheduled to resume today from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The same contract was rejected Aug. 23, and a second vote was cancelled after it ran past a company deadline.

If the concessions are approved, Mercury says it will keep its manufacturing in Fond du Lac and bring additional work to the plant from its non-union facility in Stillwater, Okla.

Otherwise, Mercury plans to move operations to Oklahoma.
