Some union employees at Mercury Marine are asking about having a second vote on a labor contract they rejected last weekend, according to reports.

Mercury's contract proposal expires at midnight Saturday.

The two sides met Tuesday, but no changes to the proposed contract were made by Mercury. The company reiterated it had no plans to change its proposal.

Union members last weekend rejected Mercury's "best and final" contract proposal, prompting the company to confirm repeated earlier statements that rejection of the contract would result in work leaving Fond du Lac, Wis., for the Stillwater, Okla., plant.
