"Sikorsky Aircraft is disappointed that the union has not accepted the company's revised contract proposal, which is a fair and generous offer. The union continues to reject the same health care plan that covers all of Sikorsky's other Connecticut hourly and salary employees.
"The company's revised proposal, presented last Monday (March 13) to the federal mediator, addresses the union's economic concerns by rearranging annual wage increases and cash bonuses.
"During the strike, all Sikorsky facilities remain open for business."
