Dan Kubera, spokesperson for the Brunswick Corporation, which owns and operates Lund Boats, said, "Our belief was that unionization was not in the best interest of the employees nor the business. We are gratified by the outcome."

"We engaged our workforce in an open and frank dialogue on reasons to support the company's belief and why unionization was not in their best interest," Kubera said.
