Oct. 17, 1971

Employees of Columbia Nitrogen in Augusta have voted 100-49 against representation by the Teamsters Union.

Thomas Kendrick III, general manager of operations with the Augusta plant, said that of the 154 people in the potential bargaining unit, 153 voted.

Four of the votes were contested and were not counted because the election was not close enough to require it, Mr. Kendrick said.
