Mine workers are still on strike at two coal mines after union members rejected a contract proposal.

The United Mine Workers of America said the representative for more than 1,100 Warrior Met Coal workers rejected a tentative deal in balloting on Friday.

International President Cecil Roberts said members have the final say in collective bargaining agreements, so they will continue to strike.The walkout affects two facilities.

The tentative agreement between union representatives and the company was announced a week ago.
