Local 4500 of the Canadian Union of Public Employees, which represents them, says it has kept the result of the December 12 vote secret until now to avoid sowing alarm as the holiday season approaches.

Employees targeted include maintenance supervisors, trainers and engineers. According to their union, a mediation meeting must take place next week.
