    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“This isn't about money because Sikorsky has plenty. The company has said it wants to cut our health care to teach us a financial lesson. That's not right and it won't fly.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Sikorsky officials erroneously believe that negotiations mean we must accept their inferior and unacceptable contract offer. What is missing from the company's position is the normal give and take that occurs during good-faith bargaining.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Why do the rich get even richer, while regular working Americans can't even hold onto their basic health care benefits? The head of United Technologies raked in $13.4 million in total compensation and cashed out $83.6 million in stock options -- and he wants to ax health care for the 3,600 Teamsters on strike at Sikorsky. The race to the bottom for the middle class must stop now.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The outpouring of support from other unions and from local and state officials has been overwhelming. Sikorsky Teamsters know that they are not alone in this difficult fight, and we are standing strong.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“We've said for weeks now that we are ready, willing and able to meet Sikorsky at the negotiating table and work out a fair contract that gets our people back to work and lets them maintain affordable health care benefits. What I do want is for both sides to fully understand the wide-ranging effects this situation is having on individuals, families, communities and the state as a whole.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“We've said from the start that this is about securing affordable health care benefits for these workers. The changes the company made in the recent proposal still do not address our members' greatest concern -- health care. The $1,000 increase in the signing bonus was not the only addition in the company's proposal; there were several items that would severely hurt the members of this union. We have made a counter proposal and are awaiting a response from the company.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It serves no one when one side is going through the motions of negotiations, but not seriously addressing the core issue that remains in contention. We are not asking for anything that will radically change the overall economics of the past proposals. Our members would like nothing better than to see this resolved so they can get back to doing what they do better than anyone in the world -- building America's helicopters.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“We were surprised that Sikorsky was a no-show after the company's non- stop rhetoric about wanting to negotiate. The empty chairs show Sikorsky's true motive -- to try to break the resolve of striking Teamsters. And that's a lost cause because Teamsters don't back down.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Negotiators were prepared to discuss that issue today, but Sikorsky would rather play games than engage in good-faith bargaining that would get people back to work.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The Teamsters stood together in solidarity not just for ourselves and our families, but on behalf of all working Americans who find themselves slipping away from the middle class and the American dream. We will return to our jobs with our heads held high, knowing that our courageous actions against the power of big business in this country will ultimately make a difference.”
