United Food and Commercial Workers Local 86D voted no to the most recent contract proposal drawn up by Muscatine’s Grain Processing Corporation.

Union President Tony Newton said today that members indicated they chose to decline the contract because it offered no job security.

On Aug. 22, 2008, 360 Local 86D members were locked out of GPC because of failed contract negotiations. Newton said 90 members remain in the union and an “overwhelming number” of them voted against the contract and the potential to return to their jobs.

GPC officials confirmed that the company had received the rejection from the union but declined further comment
