Mystic, CT - The employees of Mystic Seaport voted Friday down an attempt to form a union.

The vote was 145 to 90.

The election was conducted by the National Labor Relations Board in reaction to a petition filed on July 6, 2012 by AFT Connecticut to organize all non-management employees of the Museum.

“We are very pleased by the outcome of the election. By rejecting the union, our employees indicate they want to continue to have a direct, individual relationship with management and we believe that is the best way for us to work together,” said Mystic Seaport President Steve White. “This has been a very divisive process for the entire staff and the next step is to immediately begin the healing process and address the issues and concerns the organizing process brought forward.”
