A bargaining committee would only reveal how close a vote was if it was to their advantage. For example they would anounce the details if it was 95% in support(anything over 90% is usally considered strong support in bargaining). If it was 51% they would merely say they had the support of the majority of members.
Of course it is no different for the owners. Neither side is under any obligation to share percentages.
