Cameco workers at two Saskatchewan uranium facilities have voted for strike action. 

According to the United Steelworkers Local 8914, workers at McArthur River mine and Key Lake mill recently voted 92 per cent in favour.

The union represents 540 employees at the two facilities. The number of workers who voted wasn't immediately available.

Cameco, one of the world's largest producers of uranium, is based in Saskatoon.

Both sides are still in bargaining until Aug. 28. If there's no progress by that date, the membership will take strike action, the union says.
