STRATFORD - Union members voted in favor of a deal Sunday that would keep Sikorsky Aircraft in Stratford until at least 2032. 

More than 2,000 Teamsters approved the deal.

It includes a 25 percent pay cut for workers hired starting in 2017. 

In late September the general assembly approved tax breaks for the company.

In exchange Sikorsky will produce a new line of helicopters in the state and will add new jobs.
