Sikorsky strike goes into day seven with no end in sight
? Striking Sikorsky workers entered their seventh day on the picket line Sunday.
Union workers say the support they are getting from drivers who honk their horns is helping morale. The union refuses to sign a new contract with the Stratford-based helicopter maker, saying the agreement would double workers' health insurance co-payments in the first year and increase 15 percent in the following years.
One teamster says he hopes the union and company can get back to the business of making helicopters soon.
