BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - University of Vermont staff members have voted not to be represented by the Vermont State Employees Association union.

The university says the final tally against representation was 335-303 after the election on Dec. 16-17. A simple majority was required.

The proposed bargaining unit approved by the Vermont Labor Relations Board would have consisted of about 760 employees in administrative/clerical, technical and specialist jobs. The unit did not include temporary employees, work-study students, or employees in supervisory, confidential or management positions.

Wanda Heading-Grant, vice president for human resources, diversity, and multicultural affairs at UVM, said administration officials encouraged full participation in the vote.
