A last-minute decision Saturday to have a second vote on a labor contract at Mercury Marine was effectively killed early Sunday when the company said it would not accept the results of any ballots cast after midnight, the Journal Sentinel newspaper reports.

Late Saturday night, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers Lodge 1947 announced there would be a second vote on the contract proposal that was scheduled to expire at midnight.

But early Sunday morning, union officials said a Mercury Marine executive told them the company would not accept any ballots cast after midnight, which was the deadline for the union to accept the company's proposal.
