WINSTON-SALEM, NC (AP) – Production and maintenance workers at two R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Co. plants in North Carolina will vote next month on union representation.

The Winston-Salem Journal reported that Reynolds confirmed Thursday that a joint petition was filed Sept. 12 with the National Labor Relations Board. The petition was filed by the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers and the Bakery, Confectionery, Tobacco Workers and Grain Millers International Union.

Reynolds said a secret-ballot vote will take place Oct. 20-21 at its Tobaccoville and Whitaker Park plants. Previous votes were held in 2006 and 2005.

According to the petition, more than 1,200 employees are eligible to vote.
