Stratford police work overtime to manage Sikorsky Aircraft strike
Stratford police officers are working overtime to manage almost 500 workers on strike from Sikorsky Aircraft.
Workers went on strike Monday after leaders of the Local 1150 of the Teamsters rejected the company?s contract offer. Major sticking points are health insurance premiums and prescription drug costs.
The town of Stratford is spending $12,000 to $15,000 a day in overtime costs. Traffic lights around Sikorsky have been turned off as officers manage the heavy flow of 5,000 salaried workers coming in and out of the plant every day.
