Stratford mayor says Sikorsky strike may affect taxpayers
The cost of security at the Sikorsky picket line is mounting for the town of Stratford. Stratford Mayor Jim Miron recently asked Governor Rell (R-CT) to help pay for overtime or send state police to help patrol the picket line, but his bid was rejected. However, Miron says the town does not have the money in reserve to pay for police overtime. Picketers have been out on the line for more than two weeks and so far the strike has cost the town of Stratford more than $250,000. Miron says with no end in sight, he's worried that taxpayers will feel the effects of the strike in their pocketbooks.
