It’s the second offer to be rejected, so the union will continue working under its old contract. Workers are advised to show up for work Monday.

No further contract negotiations are scheduled at this time, says Ashcraft.

Based on the percentage of votes, it looks as though the two sides are coming closer to an agreement. The union had rejected Aurora Casket’s first contract offer in March when 96 percent of members voted against it.
