STRATFORD - Stratford-based Sikorsky Aircraft has announced it will be cutting 419 jobs at its local plant.

A union rep says 384 of those jobs on the chopping block are union jobs.

Congresswoman Rosa DeLauro is questioning why Connecticut has to bear the brunt of the layoffs.

A Sikorsky spokesman responded to Congresswoman DeLauro's concerns in a statement saying, "We will be happy to discuss with her the changing conditions affecting our business."
