Sikorsky union workers to return to work after strike in Stratford
Sikorsky union workers will be returning to work Wednesday after more than 40 days on the picket line.
Union members voted Sunday to accept the company?s contract offer. The approved contract is similar to the contract that was under debate when the workers went on strike. However, this contract increases the bonus given to each union member who participated in the bargaining process.
The main sticking point for striking workers was health care. Under the new contract, workers will now pay more for their medical co-pays and prescription drug coverage.
Sikorsky officials say everyone should be back on the production line by next Monday.
